Re: Panerai
This surname is typical of the Florence (Firenze) area.
It doesn't almost exist outside Florence.
It comes probably from an old professional name "panieraio" or "paneraio": it was a person who made Baskets with osiers.
Than it ends in "i" like many italian suranmes. The "i" was originally
the mark of latin genitive.
