Since taking the alternativa, Diego Silveti,, the son of the late David Silveti, has been keeping family tradition alive, In a recent Mexico City performance he reconfirmed the initial hopes he set for himself as a novillero, by giving one of the greatest faenas of his life, in which he cut a tail.
In the weeks following this extravagant Plaza Mexico showing, Silveti has had other triumphs as well.
Having been seen in Spain, France and South America, as well as the major Mexican rings, he seems well on his way to carrying on the tradition of his father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather. Even an earlier injury in Sevilla has failed to damper him.
Diego Silveti may well be on his way to figura status.
