Villa e Collezione Panza, Varese

4.2
#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.

  • The villa is well preserved and exhibits numerous works, very pleasant the park, well cared for. The most important part of the visit is dedicated to the works of Sean Scully, visible until 01-06-2020. Scully's works together with the works of the other authors present in the Panza collection have given us a wonderful experience. Quite easy to get to, the road is well marked by many signs. Internal parking 2.50 Euro, free with card FAI, outside it is impossible to park. Admission 15 Euro 6, 5 with FAI card. Polite and prepared the staff. Inside there is a small cafeteria. Recommended.

  • We often return to Villa Panza at events or exhibitions and it is always a pleasant experience. Currently the works of Sean Skully, a very interesting artist, are exhibited. Among the permanent productions you can not mention Dan Flavin and its bright rooms, wonderfully suggestive. The works of James Turrel and, outside, the large bathtub for the rainwater collection of Meg Webster.
