Links to a search for [Giovanni Schiaparelli]... with currently, Wikipedia being the top result when I try.

<<Giovanni Virginio Schiaparelli (March 14, 1835 – July 4, 1910) was an Italian astronomer. He studied at the University of Turin and Berlin Observatory and worked for over forty years at Brera Observatory. (...)

He observed objects in the solar system, and after observing Mars he named the "seas" and "continents". Beginning in 1877 he also believed he had observed long straight features he called canali in Italian, meaning "channels" but mistranslated as "canals".>>
