Cesar Ferranti, was active in Liverpool into the 1880s and has been noted as both French and Italian. One notation identifies him as a French photographer and painter named Caesar while another credits him as Italian with the name Cesar and as father of noted electrical engineer and inventor Sebastian Ziani de Ferranti. Both notations agree that Cesar’s/Caesar’s wife was Juliana (Scott) Ziani Ferranti, concert pianist. (from an Ebay posting)
