Vintage Market, Circolo degli Artisti

Posted on Nov 19, 2008 | 9 comments

Circolo degli Artisti on the via Casilina Vecchia is one of my favorite places to go out in Rome. I love the laid back atmosphere, they have lots of different concerts by smaller, underground bands, and there’s lots of space. They do a vintage market every Sunday, which I went to this weekend with a friend. I used to go to these types of things all the time in Camden when I lived in London, and while it’s not quite that standard, it’s cool to know these things are getting going in Rome as well. Great fodder for photos as well. Their website is good, but check out their myspace page for even newer updates.


  1. Does that man have a cigarette in his mouth? If so it’s funny the see the no smoking sign in the background.

    I’ll have to check out this market. I’ve been to the Sunday Flamino market.

  2. Oh he certainly does…that’s part of the reason I love the photo so much. I haven’t been to Flaminio, how is it?

  3. I have just visited to my space,and enjoyed it.
    it has different feeling to J-rock.
    I had not listened to Itarian rock for long time.
    “P.F.M” was very popular in Japan, when I was a boy.

  4. Through your photos it certainly looks like a place with a great atmosphere. The ‘no-smoking-yes-I-do’ photo is great! 🙂

  5. Nobu – Most of the music isn’t the type of thing you would hear on the radio here, but more indie stuff. That’s so funny you know PFM. I used to give English lessons to a doctor here and he made me a cd of their music!

    JM – Yes, the “No Smoking” sign but I don’t care attitude is quite indicative of the attitude here, very funny. Definitely not like in America where people are so shocked when someone breaks the rules.

  6. Great blog and beautiful photographs. Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work. Rick

  7. Thank you Rick, I appreciate the support and am glad you enjoy it!

  9. A belated thank you Niamh. It is a pretty cool place for Rome, you see lots of interesting people with a style of their own here.
