Maria Villani Scicolone (born Maria Villani;[1] 11 May 1938) is the former wife of Romano Mussolini (26 September 1927 – 3 February 2006), the youngest son of Benito Mussolini. The couple had two daughters. After her divorce from Romano, she married heart surgeon Magid Tamiz in 1977.[2]

She is the younger sister of actress Sophia Loren and the mother of Italian politician Alessandra Mussolini (born 30 December 1962). She played herself in the 2007 documentary Sophia: Ieri, oggi, domani and authored the 2010 autobiographical TV movie My House Is Full of Mirrors, in which she and Loren starred. She has wrongly been addressed as "Anna Maria", however her first name is simply Maria.
