Almost 40 years ago, Lt. Col. Richard Cummings purchased “Indian” from Antonio Diego (referred to the biography written by Joy Gibson) at the Ramstein AFB in Germany.  Receiving memories on how Diego collectors purchased Diego’s works of art adds to the history of Diego Voci and becomes a part of the Diego Voci Legacy.

THE #DIEGOVOCI #LEGACY LIVES ON

The Diego Voci Legacy lives on in big ways and smaller ways. A smaller painting “Petite Fille” completed and purchased in the last year of Diego’s life. Joyce Burke (Diego Voci collector) shares “This piece was given to me for my Birthday in 1985. I love this painting.”

Joyce shares her Diego painting with the Diego Voci Project and sent over an image of the back with the original paperwork from 1985. We appreciate Joyce for the information and the images, as it assists us here at the Diego Voci Project Team in cataloging Diego’s works with the Diego Voci Estate.

“THE *DIEGO #POTATO #CHIP #PHENOMONEN”

Can you eat only one potato chip and stop?

Likely no. Many people similarly became addicted to a magnetic appeal of art by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Many such collectors who had a dozen or more Diego’s have passed on, and the Diego art works have been scattered.

When Diego passed away back in 1985, Helga (Diego’s widow) had no idea that Diego’s life would create such a legacy to so many. Thanks to the internet, social media, and communication tools, Diego Voci collectors are being discovered every day.

Be a part of Diego Voci’s legacy, assist us (all volunteer) Diego Voci Project Team with locating Diego Voci’s works of art for the Diego Voci Estate Archive. They have been found as far a way as Brussels, Nicaragua, Philippines and Canada. Please email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com how you purchased your first painting, what prompted the second purchase, maybe the third.

Strengthen the Legacy of Diego Voci – Your Photos & Stories about Diego are Needed!

…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).

Paris 1968 on the Seine River Helga and Diego with Helga's Parents

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 diegovociproject@gmail.com
