After an interview with #DiegoVoci™ in December 1973, Victoria Williams, then a writer was helping #Coop Cooprider gather stories, photos, & related ‘Diego’ information to assemble a book. She wrote, “DIEGO dominates the space around him.” The interview was published in a local TV Guide in Germany: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/publications-diegovocitm/

The book did not happen in 1973, but last year in July 2015, Stephen Max and Coop Cooprider were able to select more than 100 images of Diego‘s art, an internationally collected Italian #Artist. Cooprider (DiegoVoci™Historian since ’73) recruited Stephen Max, from Alberta, Canada to join the DiegoVoci™Project (DVP). Stephen and his wife Wendy had exclusively represented Diego in Canada from 1981 until Diego’s untimely death from lung #cancer in 1985. Diego’s widow Helga Voci and their daughter Alessandra Voci still reside in Germany.

Enter “Stephen Max”here in the WordPress Search field – the 5 part tribute to Stephen and his wife Wendy is well deserved! SearchDiegoVoci” on #Google and you will find #YouTube videos,  #Virtual #Museum #Tour, a 20-yr retrospective https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GG5Jl-2FuXM  and the DVP official website: www.diegovociproject.com The DVP™ thanks to Stephen even offers a Free monthly #Newsletter – and so much more!

HUNGER FOR MORE DiegoVoci ™ SPARKS A #SEARCH

On the last day of 2015 Kami of the DiegoVoci™ Project (DVP) staff saw a post on Jacqueline’s #Facebook page. A DiegoVoci™ oil painting titled “La Lecture” was purchased by Jacqueline directly from Diego in #Ramstein, Germany:

La Lecture 31x23.5 in  RE DO by Max 2 Jan 2016

“La Lecture” Oil on Canvas by Antonio Diego Voci, ca 1975, 31″x 23.5″ (541001)

Regarding meeting with the great artist Diego, owner #Jacqueline Ping recalls,

“It was in 1975…a lifetime ago. I bought that painting as an investment painting hoping that someday he would be well-known.  I paid $300.00 for it at the time.  I still have his brochure from then.  Didn’t get an autograph but I should have, huh?”

Jacqueline also remembers,

“Diego was a very quiet soft spoken man. Diego and I conversed. We talked about his Indian paintings and his trip to #New Mexico. I remember telling him he looked like the American Indian and he said, ‘Yes people say that.’ Diego also mentioned how he really liked our #Southwest. We spoke of the similarity to parts of #Spain and #Italy. I was struck by the #artworks he had on display and Diego himself more than anything else.”

But, Jacqueline wanted more!

“I also wanted another which was a lady with a big red hat. I wanted both but could only afford one. It was exquisite and although I love the one I have. I have never forgotten her.” Kami said, “That reminds me of a Diego I think I have seen. I’ll try to find it.”

Kami searched through hundreds of images in the #DiegoVoci™Archive until she found a woman in a red hat and sent the image to Jacqueline:

BINGO. “Yes, that’s her!”

#Conversations between #DiegoVoci™ Collectors

Eight years ago, one DiegoVoci™ collector after another found each other.  The door opened for discussions as DiegoVoci™ collectors share their hidden DiegoVoci™ works of art.  Christiane, Diego’s niece, posted her favorite DiegoVoci™ (see the original post on Artifact Collectors: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818.html#40044).

This portrait is signed “Voci” a signature used pre 1965 prior to “Diego“.  A gentleman called FORMERMIL (Col. Stev Snow) who sadly to say is no longer with us here on earth) posted an astute interpretation of Christiane Hauk’s favorite work of art by DiegoVoci™.

Christiane

A drawing by DiegoVoci™ 

In FORMERMIL’s words;

“What a great piece of art.  I love the movement surrounding an otherwise haunting Mona Lisa beauty – some sadness and resignation in the mouth and lips, yet penetrating complexity in the eyes projecting strength.”

#Dining with @DiegoVoci Part 4 #LaGondola Restaurant

DiegoVoci™ was known for his palette covered in paint – and very often for his other #palette of savoring great Italian #cuisine.

“We all went to this restaurant “La Gondola” many years ago with Uncle Diego” recalls Mario Voci, his nephew who lives in England with his wife Dagmar. For years the two made an annual trip to Rome, where Mario’s sister Lina still lives today. Her son Francesco Caruso just had Lina’s 1st grandson: Niccolo.

Mario’s wife Dagmar recently came across the Order Ticket” also used as a Receipt (#Rechnung) seen below. The 1,000 Deutsche Mark faux Image is on the back of the ticket!  Diego created the owner, Cesare Gianni of “La Gondola” in caricature ( 1 #DM was 4 to $1 at the time):

La Gondola TRIER BACK of Receipt by DIEGO 30 NOV 2015 1kMark

DM 1,000 fake bill for “La Gondola” Back of ‘Order Ticket’/Receipt by Diego Voci, Late 1960’s.

“The laurel wreath on the subject is due to the fact that #Trier was once Roman and also the capital of the North-West Roman empire*.   I hope you find it interesting,” shares Mario who was very close to his Uncle Diego and still visits Helga Voci in #Taunusstein near #Wiesbaden every year.  Here are Helga and Diego in the late ’60s:

"La Gondola" Restaurant in Trier, Germany. Late 1960s.

“La Gondola” Restaurant Order Ticket/Receipt Front in Trier, Germany. Late 1960s.

On the drive thru Germany to visit Uncle Diego and Aunt Helga we always tried to stop in #Trier, for a palatable and delicious Italian meal. The ‘La Gondola’ restaurant was a favorite – not just for my wife and I  – but Uncle Diego and Helga would even meet us there.” Diego knew Cesare Gianni like he did many other Italian restaurant ‘owners’ (‘Inh.’ = Inhaber) he did Ciccio and Francesco Daneluzzi (and, Gigi Bellati of La Gondola in Ramstein, more to come…)

See Dining With Diego Parts 1, 2, and 3: https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/06/12/dining-with-diego-in-germany/

Today, a local hospital “#Krankenhaus” covers the entire area where “La Gondola”stood. Like many of the day, . . . gone.

Where and when did you meet DiegoVoci™ at a #restaurant?

Tell us, The DiegoVoci™Project: diegovociproject@gmail.com

*Trier is noted for its Roman history, to include the #Porta Nigra (Black Gate) which still stands today, as well as the #aquaducts and “Imperial Baths”the #Romans built during their reign in #Trier on the #Mosel River. Google “Trier, Germany”

“Arrivederci” as it reads at the bottom of the ticket . . . watch for Dining with Diego Part 5. Coming Soon!
