Panza (Giuseppe) Papers
Series I. General files, 1956-1990 36 lin. ft. 94 boxes
Series I contains correspondence and other material primarily relating to Panza's collection, and also about art and culture in general, filed alphabetically by correspondent or institution. Of particular interest are files pertaining to Panza's attempt to install his collection for the general public in museums and renovated villas and factories throughout Europe and the United States (especially in Mönchengladbach, Düsseldorf, Basel, Castello di Rivoli, Vigevano and his own villa in Varese). These files contain much correspondence with museum directors and curators, architectural drawings, and a very large quantity of installation designs by Panza which record a focused and methodical approach to curating the collection. Concurrent correspondence with Beni Culturali officials, lawyers and others document Panza's legal problems associated with changes in Italian cultural patrimony laws and tax codes, which affected the eventual sale of part of the collection to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) in 1984. There is other correspondence with critics, such as Germano Celant and Pierre Restany, and some with collectors, art world personalities and personal friends. Other material documents Panza's affiliations with various cultural associations, institutions and conferences, such as the Amici di Brera and the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
