|*Club domestic league appearances and goals|
Volk is regarded as one of the most prolific goalscorers in history of Roma and is remembered as the club's first goalscorer in an official match. As of May 2020 he is the fourth best goalscorer in Roma's history, having scored 103 goals in 157 league appearances. In 2018, he was inducted into the club's Hall of Fame.
In 1928 he was signed up by the newly formed Italian club A.S. Roma and became one of its most important players during the 1920s and the 1930s. He was the first official goalscorer in Campo Testaccio, the club's first ever stadium.
Playing a total of 150 games with the Giallorossi, he scored 103 goals for the club, and scored the first goal in the first ever Derby della Capitale, a 1–0 victory against cross-city rivals S.S. Lazio in 1929.
Rodolfo Volk was born in 1906 in the Adriatic port city of Fiume, Austria-Hungary (today Rijeka, Croatia), to an ethnic Slovene family. The meaning of his family name Volk in Slovene is wolf, a symbol of the club Roma where he spent his most prolific playing days and is considered a club legend. During the interwar period and the fascist state policy of forced italianization he was known under the italianized name of Rodolfo Foschi (or Folchi). In 1934 his first wife Giovanna died prematurely. After World War II he and his second wife Maria, together with his two sons, were forced to leave Rijeka and were eventually settled in a refugee camp in Laterina. Later in life he moved to Rome and made a living with the help of a number of low-paying jobs. Volk died, on the night between 2 and 3 October 1983, impoverished and forgotten in a nursery home in a small town of Nemi.
