Italian term or phrase: rocco barocco
Please explain whether there is some special meaning in the artificial name Rocco Barocco that may be unclear to a non-native speaker.

I suspect that there should more than just an obvious combination of a human name and art style. And more than Rocco - Rococo connotation.
