Villa e Collezione Panza, Varese

4.4
#1 of 14 in Shopping in Province of Varese
Set in a massive estate, Villa e Collezione Panza represents an attractive villa now home to the Saatchi Gallery. The villa went through a number of owners over several centuries before being donated by Giuseppe Panza to the National Trust of Italy. Panza was an avid art collector and the gallery displays his personal collection of American art, including artists like Phil Sims, David Simson, Ruth Ann Fredenthal, Stuart Arends, and Max Cole, among others. Enjoy the contemporary art, as well as the contrasting setting--the villa and the surrounding gardens date back to the 18th century.

  • Located on a hill above Varese in Biumo Superiore you can admire the beautiful views on clear days. Built in the mid-18th century it houses a collection of contemporary art. Villa of delight with its U-shape opens onto an Italian garden and partly to the French enriched on the margins by rare plants high stem that could be element x lessons of botany( there is also jug tree). Spectacular Carpini Avenue! Ernesto Panza entrusts the architect Portaluppi with the construction of the greenhouse, the knoll and the temple. Today the property of the FAI.
