Diego Maradona’s house is auctioned: from the gift to his parents to the fire that “wiped it out” – TyC Sports

A property that is located in Villa Devoto and that had been a gift from the star to his parents. The auction will start at US $ 900,000.

The iconic house that Diego Maradona gave his parents (Doña Tota and Don Diego) in the 80s, located at Calle Cantillo 4451 in Villa Devoto, will be one of the goods that will be in the auction.

Since the death of his parents, the property was in the care of his sisters and they only used it to meet on birthdays, special events or to use the pool in summer, although all this ended in April of this year when the courts determined that the house belonged to the heirs, so, after spending a Sunday Easter as a farewell, the family began the move and the transfer of different objects.

But if we talk about “secrets”, we must highlight a couple of issues: the house went through a fire that wiped it out in 2014. “There was nothing left”they said from around the Ten back then. For example, the honorary Ballon d’Or that France Football gave Diego in 1995, a prize that the star wanted to recover moments before his death: he asked the French magazine for it in exchange for them to interview him.

In addition, the property had pieces that could be authentic from a museum, such as a table that Dona Tota had asked Maradona and that “it was worth a fortune”; a house that also witnessed the first meals of the star with Diego Junior and of a barbecue with luxury guests: Argentine tennis player David Nalbandian, Spanish Carlos Moyá, who was in Buenos Aires to play the ATP 250 that is played at Lawn Tennis.

Diego's house

And finally, a property that, in the midst of that beautiful decoration at its entrance with the bushes, there was a small hermitage that Don Diego cared for a lot, since there was the virgin who had accompanied Maradona on his way through Napoli, although it was no longer there since that day of the move. The question: did her relatives rescue her or did they steal her?
