In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Starting from Monday, June 14 not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve outdoor (indoor, six people max at the same table), but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Curfew suspended.
.:. Official news at the YesMilano website.

from September 15, 2000
֍ reopened April 29, 2021

Tue-Sun 10am-6pm; reservation always recommended, and for weekends compulsory the day before

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 is Sudden Time, with works by Chiara Dynys and Sean Shanahan.
