Villa Menafoglio Litta Panza in Varese, outside Milan was built in the late 18th century. In 1935 it was bought by Ernesto Panza di Biumo. Upon his death, his son Giuseppe used it to house his collection of contemporary art. It is now a museum where his daughter Giuseppina is a curator. In 1996 Giuseppe Panza donated the villa and collection to Italy’s National Trust, FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano. Photo: Arenaimmagini.it, 2013 © FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano
