#DIEGO_VOCI in #AMERICA

During a 1974 interview with John Krueger, about Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) he quotes DIEGO saying “I love America and the Americans”, enthuses Diego with the typical expansive gesture with his Fellini face in Mastroianni manner.” THAT WAS OUR DIEGO!!!

Writing for the #Stars_and_Stripes John further stated, “Diego’s productivity is the envy of other painters, and if he stays up all night these days it is to create at his easel. Mornings are for sleeping. Afternoons for sales. The ground floor of the house is a combination Studio & Gallery. American cars with their green U.S. Forces plates pull up and fill up with Diego Originals. I saw a young haired blue-jeaned officer squeezing wife son and newly-acquired Diego painting into a low-slung sports car. Many of the Americans come from neighboring Patrick Henry Village. They have seen Diego’s exhibits in German galleries or in the States. He travels regular to the US “where the art action is”. Helga and he drove coast-to-coast last fall and foundeverything so colorful so panoramic.””
