Hi (oh Madonna mì!):

La Rocca=Inhabitant of Tower, or Mount's inhabitant...
Di Lena= son of (E)Lena (Elena=Helen; italian diminutive: Lena)or/also ancient inhabitant of Leni Common(Eolie Islands-Sicily. Also this town's name coming from greek name Elèna - become Lena for aphaeresis, in the time transformed in Leni ...Elèna greek word=sun's splendor)...


currently La Rocca in Larino: http://paginebianche.virgilio.it/pb/cer ... o&x=52&y=7
Di Lena in larino: http://paginebianche.virgilio.it/pb/cer ... o&x=57&y=7
