Thomas Cocke

Thomas Cocke   submitted on Fri, 05/09/2008 - 15:31 in Obituaries Group by Serginho

Aged 16 Thomas Cocke passed his A levels and won an open scholarship to Pembroke College, Cambridge. With two years to wait before going up to Cambridge he left Marlborough (where he was a scholar) and went on his travels. After visiting the US, where he became an honorary member of a Native American tribe, he went to Bologna to stay with an aunt, Kitsy Colliva. She had married the city’s mayor in 1933 and remained in Italy during the Second World War. There he learnt Italian and laid the foundations of his lifelong interest in Italian art and architecture.
