"The Panza Collection is entirely a couple's affair. When my wife Giovanna and I discover works by a new artist, I look at her and she looks at me. I can see in her eyes if she wants to buy or not. So even between my wife and me, "looking" is a issue. "
"As a collector, I feel to have an educational duty towards the public. My educational approach resides not in words, like a teacher, but in my exhibitions."
- - Giuseppe Panza di Biumo
Giuseppe Panza di Biumo, along with his wife Giovanna, is recognized as one of the world’s foremost collectors of contemporary art. The collection, originally composed of around 2,500 works of art, is mainly representative of the most significant developments in American art from postWorld War II to the 21st century. Along with a need to fulfill spiritual and inner quests, both intuition and reflection have inspired the collectors’ choice that would demonstrate, retrospectively, their farsightedness. By devoting themselves to an in-depth focus on emerging artists and specific creative periods, the Panzas contributed to acknowledging the new art forms among both the general public
and the art market.
PanzaCollection is dedicated to fostering knowledge and appreciation of the artworks collected by Giuseppe and Giovanna Panza. The mission of PanzaCollection is to cooperate with museums and cultural institutions, fulfilling the purpose of its founders.
