“Hello everyone! As I was going through some old photos it occurred to me an episode happened when uncle Diego was visiting us in the mid 50’s, same time of the photo where the whole Voci family are posing in front of St. Peter’s in #Rome with “nonna” (grandma) Arcangela ( See photo: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page7.html#198)
He came with his big car #Opel #Kapitän and as I was fascinated by its size and style. I asked my father Guiseppe (#Diego’s younger brother) if uncle could take me for a drive, which he did.
Whilst driving I noticed a hammer on the dashboard and I asked what on earth he had such a thing next to him. He took the hammer, and smiling he banged it against the windscreen and said it was only rubber – that he used it when driving in Paris for the drivers there were a bit naughty. Uncle “Toto” would frighten them by banging the hammer on his windows.
Funny but true. He liked to joke a lot my dear uncle “Toto“. I hope this will be of interest to you.
Best wishes from Mario Voci in England”
