Of course it is of Horatio or of Horace, the Roman poet laureat of Rome after Virgil . Anyone names D'Orazio is a decendant of Horace or in Italian 'Orazio'. Look him up on a search engine or get a book on the Odes of Horace. It explains who he was. You can read his poems. He was given a villa outside of Rome called Villa D'Orazio. This was like 56 B.C. or so.
