“To draw, to paint is my soul” ....Diego

 Diego, a “genius for the ages.”
Back in the time of Diego’s birth, August 10th 1920, many people were born either in a small town or in a growing city, they grew up there, took on an adult life and profession that was almost identical to their parents. They married and raised families in that same town or city, and died there. Sure, some people traveled, learned foreign languages, changed careers, and broke off on their own unique path – but many, many people did not.

Antonio DIEGO Voci was one of the few who did.
And he started early!
Diego was Southern Italian born in the charming village of Gasperina Italy and like many artists, led an improbable life steered by wartime hardship and post-war prosperity.  The history and trajectory of Diego’s early life, from his classical training in Europe’s famed Art institutions and his stint as an Italian soldier in a German Prisoner of War Camp through his nomadic traveling and his final days in his adopted German homeland, has all the requisite elements of Diego’s favourite novel, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra’s Don Quixote.  …Chris Voci
