Diego Voci’s Birthplace: Via Regina Elena, 85 Gasperina (CZ) Italy
95 years ago today in a tiny village of Gasperina, Tailor Guiseppe Antonio Voci’s wife Messina Arcangela gave birth to her second of three sons, Antonio Innocenzo Voci, destined to become the internationally collected artist known as “Diego Voci”.
Like his 2 brothers, Diego attended tailoring school in Reggio, learning skills he would apply designing clothes for himself and ladies of his liking, click on link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#1920.E2.80.931938:_early_life. But art was his true love. “I must to paint”. Diego did not hear his father’s advice “The God of art does not give bread”.
Diego would draw incessantly. 4,000 oil painted canvases and thousands of works on paper. Yet in the elite art world Diego Voci remained unknown. That is beginning to change as his exceptional talent is being discovered by a New Generation. Diego Voci Project is searching for and cataloging Diego’s art in the world’s only Diego Voci Archive. Please help us fine them all.
