Collezione Panza di Biumo, Villa Menafoglio Litta Panza, Varese
 
.:. art / from wines to heaven *
from September 15, 2000
Tue-Sun 10am-6pm, closed from December 24 to January 31.

You might consider the Panzas as yet another family of wealthy wine merchants like the Justerinis or the Brooks, and perhaps dismiss their dukedom of Biumo (since 1940) as too recent.
.:. You would be wrong. Giuseppe Panza di Biumo has assembled one of the most important art collections in the world, and called people like Dan Flavin, James Turrell and Robert Irwin to turn the rooms of his villa (in Biumo, of course) into works of environmental art.
.:. The result, in a neoclassical building which was renovated in 1830 by architect Luigi Canonica, is splendidly open to the public - thanks to the FAI.
.:. The current temporary exhibition, Tales, by Robert Wilson, through October 15, is extraordinary indeed.
