Collector’s jewels. The Italian ancient weapons market capital is Sarzana. That’s where collectors gather to attain Italian, but also French, Russian, Japanese and Turkish, masterpieces. Since 1999, Czerny’s have been dealing exclusively in edged weapons, firearms, armours, helmets, documents and anything that was used in battles. Czerny’s are one of a kind in Italy: they are the only auction house exclusively devoted to ancient weapons, i.e. the ones that date before 1890, as defined by the law. Their competitors are Christie’s, Sotheby’s, and Bonhams. It’s a niche business, which, nonetheless, draws a large number of regulars from all over the world. They gather, twice a year, at the Fortezza Firmafede or at the Teatro Civico in Sarzana, where Czerny’s, the only auction house specialized in ancient weapons, have their premises.
