Vintage items for collectors

unique pieces for collectors has led us to gather a wide range of items that are now nearly impossible to find

Each vintage item has a story to tell


The passion for vintage is not a vague and indistinct nostalgia for the past, but a deep appreciation and love for tangible fragments of memory. Each vintage object tells its own story and evokes distinct memories, like a powerful amulet cutting through time. It contains the narration of who and how we were, through the generations that preceded us, those of our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents. Touching these objects takes us on a journey through time, reliving past moments or discovering fractions of time never previously experienced.

Antica Cartotecnica is a treasure trove of vintage rarities from the world of writing and stationery. Hard to find pieces that narrate an Italy in black and white, different in appearance and essence. Our continuous search for unique pieces for collectors has led us to gather a wide range of items that are now nearly impossible to find. One cannot enter our store without being carried away by the many curiosities that crowd its shelves.
