…The second book is in beginning phases of “collecting” material about internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci.
The first book is “The Beauty of Diego” view http://www.blurb.com/books/5419805-the-beauty-of-diego. Flip the pages to see 140 images of works by Diego.
This second book will be an extended biography on our master artist, Diego Voci. We need everyone’s assistance in helping us gather the material to make this a successful publication. The project team wants to know of every person that has ever met Diego even for a day; those that had a handshake with Diego, an espresso with Diego, a glass of wine with Diego, and a great conversation about life and philosophy with Diego.
All Photographs of Diego are welcomed; photographs of Diego in his early years all the way until his passing. All photographs with ancestral family before Diego and after. Was Diego a competitive cyclist, let us see. Any photographs of Diego as a designer, a tailor, making a special home-cooked meal for those he stayed with while traveling around. The Diego Voci Project Team wants to see and hear all about it.
We need all of your stories about Diego written in “first-person”. What did he say? What did he do? Every little thing counts to make up the full mosaic of Diego’s life. You’ll make the book come alive.
Diego’s widow, Helga Voci supplied us with an image (see below) taken back in #1968 in #Paris along the Seine River with her parents, and Tonino Voci brother of Mario Voci in the U.K. They are two of the children to Guiseppe and Maria Teresa Voci, one of #Diego’s older brothers (Vincenzo is the eldest).

Helga also let us know via email this weekend (Saturday 11 Jan 2015),
“that Tonino came many times to visit us, he loved Diego, Diego was his great master, he wanted to do whatever Diego did, he also painted a little, but, of course, he did not have his uncle`s gift. Also after Diego`s dead he came many times to Germany to visit me, but unfortunately a few years ago he died in a car accident in Rome. I think he knew much more about Diego than Mario, as he was closer to Diego. I will try
to find more material on Diego, some pictures, letters, whatever for the new book.”
Please send us your images and material to firstname.lastname@example.org.
