Arduino "Art" Magnifico December 06, 1927 - December 07, 2010 Arduino "Art" Magnifico, 83, of Danbury, devoted husband of Mary (Moffa) Magnifico, died peacefully at his home on Tuesday, December 7th. He was born in Riccia Campobasso, Italy on December 6, 1927, son of the late Florindo and Carmela (Martina) Magnifico. Art was well known as a figure at the Old Oak Restaurant and later, along with his brother Fiorino, owned and operated Magnificos Restaurant. He was a person of devotion and integrity, a man who understood a hard day's work. Art was a wonderful chef and cooking was his passion. His greatest joy was a table surrounded by family and friends, enjoying the dishes he lovingly prepared. Art lived as a proud American, yet his native country, Italy remained deep in his heart. In addition to his beloved wife, Mary of 60 years, he will be sadly missed by his daughter, Lorenzina "Lorie" Davis of Danbury; his granddaughter, Tessa Davis of New Haven; his two brothers, Fiorino Magnifico and his wife, Thereza of Fl, and Carmen Magnifico and his wife, Rosa of Italy; his sister, Lorenza Geremia and her husband, Giuseppe of Italy; and his sister-in-law, Concetta Magnifico of Italy. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, Michele Magnifico.
