Campo San Maurizio is one of the most beautiful squares in Venice: in the Saint Mark’s district, it houses several interesting palaces from an architectural and historical point of view. On the west side, the Palazzo Bellavite, frescoed by Paolo Veronese, was home to the poet Giorgio Baffo and Alessandro Manzoni who lived there from 1803 to 1804, while the church of Saint Maurizio, of very ancient building construction, was in the 18th century the atelier of the sculptor Antonio Canova.
The Flea and Vintage Market in Campo San Maurizio, in the weekend from September 22 to September 24, is the appointment not to to be missed in Venice, with over fifty dealers exhibiting on typical wooden benches under wide tents, unchanged since the 1970s, the setting up of the market.
Ancient and rare books, paintings, fans, lamps and mirrors, passé memorabilia and prints, vintage dresses and Burano old laces are on display for the enthusiasts and collectors of antiques and collectibles.
