Marcello Vincenzo Domenico Mastroianni (September 28, 1924 – December 19, 1996) was an Italian film actor. He had 3 nominations as Academy Award for Best Actor (an important score for an actor working in non-English-language films) and won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in 1962. He is considered one of his country's finest actors and one of the best in motion picture history. He was regarded as an international sex symbol, indeed he played the Latin Lover character in some movies, whose acting style projected a mood of casual affability.

Personal life

Mastroianni was born in Fontana Lirimarker, a small village in the Apenninesmarker, the son of Ida (née Irolle) and Ottone Mastroianni, who ran a carpentry shop. Mastroianni grew up in Turinmarker and Rome. During World War II, he was interned in a German prison, but he escaped and hid in Venicemarker. Mastroianni was married to Italian actress Flora Carabella (1926 - 1999) from 1948 until his death. They had one child together, Barbara. His brother Ruggero Mastroianni (1929 - 1996) was a highly regarded film editor who not only edited a number of his brother's films, but appeared alongside Marcello in Scipione detto anche l'Africano, a comedic take on the once popular peplum/sword and sandal film genre released in 1971.

Mastroianni had a daughter, Chiara Mastroianni, with the actress Catherine Deneuve, his longtime lover during the seventies. Both Flora and Catherine were at his bedside when he died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 72, as was his partner at the time, author and filmmaker Anna Maria Tatò. According to Christopher Wiegand and Paul Duncan in their book Federico Fellini, when Mastroianni died in 1996, the Trevi Fountainmarker, which is so famously associated with him due to his role in Fellini's La dolce vita, was symbolically turned off and draped in black as a tribute.


In 1945, Mastroianni started working for a film company and began taking acting lessons. His first acting credit was in I Miserabili (1948). He soon became a major international star, starring in Big Deal on Madonna Street; and in Federico Fellini's La dolce vita with Anita Ekberg in 1960, where he played a disillusioned and self-loathing tabloid columnist who spends his days and nights exploring Rome's high society. Mastroianni followed La dolce vita with another signature role, that of a film director who, amidst self-doubt and troubled love affairs, finds himself in a creative block while making a movie in Fellini's .

Mastroianni, Dean Stockwell and Jack Lemmon are the only actors to have twice won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festivalmarker. Mastroianni won in 1970 for Dramma della gelosia - tutti i particolari in cronaca and in 1987 for Dark Eyes.
