Experience the Difference with Dio + Co.

There's so much we experience in our lives that help guide the monument design process. There are the big moments that shape us—graduation, a first job, falling in love and getting married, having children, seeing children grow into adulthood. When we reflect on our lives, it's these memories and milestones that may come to mind first. At Dio+Co., we care about our clients and pride ourselves in helping them leave behind a symbol of their legacy and that of their entire family.

Our Journey

  • Apr 13, 2021

    The Beginning

    The company was founded by Michael Dioguardi, a stone craftsman from Italy who immigrated to Rochester, Pennsylvania in 1930 and started his own monument firm four years later: Rome Monument. Rome Monument has now grown to be the parent-company of Dio + Co.

    Starting the Company

    Michael Dioguardi worked as a memorial carver for the well-respected Pittsburgh, PA monument company, Campbell-Horigan, After his stay with Campbell-Horigan, Michael was employed by Marshall’s Monument Company located in Rochester, Pennsylvania. In 1934, Michael decided to venture out on his own and open his own monument firm in Rochester, PA, just two blocks down from his former employer, Marshall’s Monument Company. The company he built has been helping families since 1958.

    Tuskegee Airmen Monument

    In 2013, Rome Monument (Dio + Co's parent company) was proud to coordinate the design, placement, and engraving of the Tuskegee Airmen Monument located in the Sewickley Cemetery in Pennsylvania. The Tuskegee Airmen Memorial is the largest outdoor memorial in the country, honoring the first African-American military pilots and support staff who were members of the 332nd Fighter Group, nicknamed the “Red Tails.” Almost 100 members of the World War II unit were from Western Pennsylvania, and their names are carved on two of the four granite monuments that make up the memorial. The other two monuments contain the history of the elite military group and a 10-foot-high piece that features an airplane tail sculpted from red granite, representing the origin of the unit’s nickname.

    Giving Back

    We value the importance of giving back to local communities. In 2015, we volunteered our services to help clean 200 headstones that were defaced with red paint in Riverview Cemetery in Kiski Township. A local newspaper published a story titled "'Miracle' product undoes grave marker damage in Riverview Cemetery." "Before we came in, we weren't sure it was going to work,” said John Dioguardi, retired owner of parent company, Rome Monument. “Everything we have ever used never worked this well...it's a miracle.”
