Open market – Treviso – recycle – Open Piave

Open Market – Handmade & Second Hand, is a regular event on the last weekend of each month. Within the ex”Piave military area” in Treviso, there is a market dedicated to handmade, recycle and second-hand designer, alongside the food market at km 0 of Genuino Clandestino.


 OPEN MARKET was born in OpenPiave, part of the planned design for the “urban regeneration” of the “ex Caserma Piave” area in Treviso (

The project involves the upgrading of some “caserma” spaces, with the support of the IUAV University of Venice, some associations, some professional studios, public bodies, groups and individual citizens.
