European Parliament motion for a resolution on safeguarding antiques markets

The European Parliament,

 having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas the centuries-old tradition of antiques and second-hand markets whose origins date back to the Middle Ages and the age of the City State, with its freedom and rich heritage, should be prioritised, incentivised and safeguarded in Italy and the rest of Europe;

B. whereas the market for antiques and artefacts contributes significantly to the GDP of individual EU Member States, and whereas there is a growing trend in exports of them;

1. Calls on the Commission to adopt a Europe-wide plan to support and raise the profile – including through the media – of the important tradition of antiques and collectors markets so as to ensure their survival, and hence develop Europe’s historical memory and preserve a vast tangible heritage of historical, archaeological, artistic, musical, military, bibliographical and archival interest, including through tax incentives.
