Can anyone clarify what 'pezzogna' is?

I was recently in Italy, south of Rome, and eating a fish called 'pezzogna' or, in some cases, 'pezzonia'. Here is a picture below. Everywhere we were told that it is a fish only from those waters, but to me it looked remarkably like a straightforward (and delicious) red sea bream (Pagellus bogaraveo). Can anyone shed any light on this?

The picture isn't great as it was low light, no flash and no tripod. Sorry about that!
