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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Varese holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Villa e Collezione Panza and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
