Conditions of publication


Through this tested online service our clients are given the chance to publish advertisements about the antiquities and art objects they want to sell. Before being published, advertisements are reviewed, corrected and improved by the team of Passione Antiqua, whose experience ensures a proper evaluation of the objects and guarantees both to the seller and the buyer the best experience of purchase. Moreover, while reviewing the advertisement we also consider the possibility of buying directly the object at issue.

Passione Antiqua acts as professional guarantor for the purchase: the proposer will be supported during the creation of the advertisement, which will be reviewed and improved by our team; the buyer will be guaranteed a proper and safe investment.

That is the difference between us and other online operators: our multiannual experience in the field of antiquities provides safety to buyers and sellers.



The PROPOSER – an easy and fast procedure: fill in the fields with the characteristics you know about the object, add some pictures, read and accept the consent form, and that’s it! After reviewing the info about the object, we will improve both the description and the pictures of the object, and only after receiving your authorization we will publish the final advertisement. Once a client shows his/her interest for the item at issue, we will contact you to discuss the details about the purchase, which you will finalize only with Passione Antiqua.

The BUYER – when you see on our website an object marked with a red G, it means that it is not physically in our store and that it is sold by third-party. When you show interest in buying that item, we will deal with the owner in sight of the purchase. Once we have the object in our store, we analyze it to make sure about the quality of the item and the authenticity of the description provided by the seller. Finally, we will bring you the object on the bases of the previous deal.
