Processing History

The archive was extensively organized by members of Panza's family. Giovanni Panza, Panza's son, from 1987-1989 divided all the material according to artist and subject. Giuseppina Caccia Dominioni Panza, Panza's daughter, began in 1989 to check Giovanni's previous work, made files, matched photographs to each work and put all the papers into folders and boxes. In 1990 Cristiana Caccia Dominioni as well as Francesca Guicciardi Panza, daughter in-law of Panza, began helping Giuseppina. Francesca checked all of the physical descriptions of the works of the collection. As of 1995, all three women worked three mornings a week in Lugano on the archive supporting the art Panza currently collects. Lynda Bunting at the Getty Center began physical processing and description of the archive March 1994 and finished May 1995.

The leather boxes were handmade by the Rilegatoria Conti Borbone di Marchesifirm in Milan. Four empty boxes and some folders have been placed at the end of the collection for replacements.
