“Diego” as he wanted the world to know him, rejected his birth middle name “Innocenzo“. Being the youngest of three boys by fifteen years, that sweet little newborn was the picture of innocence (Italian: innocenza). Diego wanted to be seen as anything but innocent. The family pet childhood name “Toto” was enough to bear. “Diego told me he never liked his middle name,” said Helga Drössler Voci, wife. “Innocenzo” is conspicuous by its official document absence in Diego’s life. Innocenzo was discovered only on his birth certificate (see below). After that it is “Antonio Voci” until 1976 when “Diego” is slipped into a government document.” – Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia https://www.diegovociproject.com/
