Varese, land of experiences

Villa Panza and the Panza Art Collection

Surrounded by splendid gardens covering 33,000 sqm, Villa Panza overlooks the city of Varese from the hill known as Biumo Superiore. More than one hundred works of art by contemporary artists are displayed in the villa’s halls and large stables as well as priceless period furnishings and an important collection of African and pre-Columbian art. The outbuildings in the service wing have been completely transformed to house environmental artworks by Robert Irwin, Maria Nordman and James Turrell, who designed new installations especially to suit these spaces and experimented with colour and light. Next door the colours from neon light installations by Dan Flavin chase away any shadows that may have once lurked as they create new shapes with three-dimensional paintings within which to move and breathe.
