I have discovered!

PUCCINI comes from an old masculin first name PUCCIO i.e a variant of
diminutive names like Jacopuccio (from Jacopo).See also the surname PUCCI, spread in Tuscany.

VOLTA is a locative name coming from local toponymy VOLTA MANTOVANA near MANTOVA or MANTUA in English.
In regional Italian or dialect a "Volta" is also a "bend" of a road or a river.
