Marcello Mastroianni was an Italian actor. He was the son of Ida and Ottone Mastroianni. His brother was editor Ruggero Mastroianni and his uncle was sculptor Umberto Mastroianni.
Marcello’s paternal grandparents were Vincenzo Mastroianni and Concetta Conte.
Marcello’s mother was typically cited in reference books as having been born Ida Irolle.
There is a web rumor that Marcello’s mother was born Ida Idelson, to a Jewish family, in Minsk, Belarus. Genealogy website Geni.com even lists Marcello’s mother as Ida Idelson, from Belarus. It is not clear if this claim is accurate.
