DINING WITH DIEGO (PART 3) FIVE YEAR MYSTERY CONTINUES

 THE QUESTION IS:

Who controls the 11 artworks by Diego Voci (1920-1985) that took us 3 years to learn they belonged to Ciccio Barchetti, owner of Ciccio’s Ristorante in Pirmasens, #Germany, who passed away in September of 2013.   And, where are they now?

I am Kami #Cooprider, DIEGO VOCI PROJECT Research Assistant, who was raised in Germany by Patti and Coop Cooprider and I like to solve mysteries. My German, which had been out of practice came in handy.

Since March of 2010, the DIEGO VOCI PROJECT (#DVP) has received 11 identical images three separate times from three separate people, each wanting to sell the same 11 paintings. We, the DVP, were excited about a find of 11 DIEGOs at one time! Here are two of the large paintings.

“La Trattoria”  and  “Dorf auf Menorca”   by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985)

1. When Ursula and Peter Puehler contacted DVP in 2010 via German e-mail to sell the 11 DIEGO paintings, we believed they were the owners. We responded. DVP never heard back from them. 3 years went by.

2. In 2013, Marisa Barchetti, sent images of the same 11 DIEGOs. These DIEGOs were the identical images the Puehler’s had sent to DVP. Marisa only spoke Italian (lives in Rome). She informed us the paintings belonged to her brother Ciccio who had a restaurant in Pirmasens, Germany, but had passed away of cancer. She did not know the Puehlers, or how they got the same 11 DIEGO images. We attempted through various means to communicate. Marisa finally explained she did not have the paintings, but was looking for them herself. We hit only dead ends. More silence.

3. I intensified my search to find the DIEGOs. I found a dated reference to Ciccio online as owner of the restaurant; but, it was now in the ownership of Mario Augurusa. It was re-named Da Mario Ristorante-Pizzeria. I called Mario. He revealed he bought the establishment from Ciccio. He also revealed quite firmly that he knew nothing about 11 DIEGOs and did not know the Puehlers. But, Mario said, “I have a few of my own.” My sister Kendra visited Mario. We featured only 3 of the DIEGOs as his others are in storage, which we have not seen.      https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/06/18/dining-with-diego-part-2/

4. THE LATEST: In April of this year, DVP again received the same 11 DIEGO images that Puehlers sent 5 years earlier; this time from a Johannes Volkemer also from Pirmasens. We were awestruck. With a bit of finesse and some luck we communicated in German. Johannes replied to DVP and told us he was Ciccio’s son – and that Marisa was his aunt living in Rome, Italy. He did not know the Puehlers. He was wanting to sell the DIEGOs. We asked that he provide us with backs of the artworks and the measurements, but he said he personally did not have them – Johannes’ sister did. Does she or doesn’t she? We requested the information again on 20 June 2015.

“Il Ponte”                                   “Clown Francesco”                       “Stillleben mit Weinflasche”

DINING WITH DIEGO PART #2

In a previous blog (PART 1) we sent you to “Da Sandro’s”  in Weingarten (near #Karlsruhe):   https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/06/12/dining-with-diego-in-germany/

In another area of #Germany, a logistic triangle of delightful Italian eateries in Germany, each about 25 minutes apart, received regular visits by internationally collected artist, Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).

In #Kaiserslautern, is“Firenze”  filled with Diego artwork which will be featured in a later blog. 

In #Ramstein, “La Gondola”  (now closed with the passing of Diego’s close friend “Gigi”. More later.)

In #Pirmasens, this blog features“Da Mario’s”  (formerly “Ciccio’s”). Enjoy a dining experience where Diego savored fine cuisine with red wine and a finale of an espresso or two and his ever present cigarette (Diego passed of Lung Cancer in 1985).

     You can sit today with one of the friendly creations of our super star Diego:

TOMORROW A NEW #CONGRESS PRESIDES

There is a big elephant in the room that is afraid of the power of the President’s “Veto Pen”.   Look closely, you can barely see the powerful weapon on the desk.

Did one third of the people who voted put the elephant in the room?  Or was it the two thirds of the people who did NOT vote?

NOT VOTING IS NO LAUGHING MATTER

In a previous #DiegoVoci post we learned that a “Pierrot” is a cousin to the Clown, Harlequin, and Jester, all of which some people who did NOT vote feel run our #Congress. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page8.html#239

This is a message to the two-thirds of Americans who did NOT vote:

You complain that Congress has a bunch of clowns and crooks’.  Look in the mirror. If you are among the two-thirds that did not vote, you are responsible.

Your vote is serious business.

Save our freedoms.  One of them is Freedom of Speech that allows artists to make fun of our elected representatives, as did these artists.  Protect our tax dollars. Your vote, combined with others can clean house.

NOTE: Not much really has changed since 9 months ago when the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and Speaker of the Senate Mitch McConnell were portrayed taking their medicine from the President. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page14.html#413

FOOTNOTE: Portrayal of real #clowns was serious business for internationally collected artist Diego Voci (VOH-chee).  There is a $30,000 reward for “The Clown” stolen ca. 1980 in Germany. Link: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page8.html#231
