The Romanelli family is an extremly wealthy family known for being one of the most famous and dangerous families in all of Bridgeport. They reside in the State of Simazonya in the town of Bridgeport.
The Romanelli family originates in Sicily, having immigrated to Bridgeport when Luigi and Giovanni were young children. Through corruption and crime the family has risen to become one of the most wealthiest families in Bridgeport, becoming leaders in local government as well the Bridgeport Mafia. Luigi served as the Don of the Mafia for a substantial amount of time until his death of natural causes. His wife, Juliana fulfilled most of his duties until the only person more dangerous than Luigi was chosen as his successor: Giovanni's wife, Betty.
Romanelli's are very well known in Bridgeport, but no so much in other areas of the state. Most members of the family are generally over-dramatic, obsessed with themselves, or just hate everyone and everything.

- Betty is evil.
- Luigi and Betty are kleptomaniacs.
- Giovanni and Betty dislike children.
- Luigi, Giovanni, and Betty are snobs.
- Luigi is mean-spirited.
- Juliana is hot-headed.
- Iva is grumpy

The Sims 3Edit
Luigi has passed away, his gravestone underneath a tree where he used to golf on the estate. His wife, Juliana, and his youngest daughter, Neva, reside in the family mansion along with Neva's husband Jeremy and Juliana's dog Fresno (Andrew lives with the family, however he is attending Smugglesworth Prep School.) Juliana had been fulfilling most of her husband's duties until her enemy, and sister-in-law, Betty was chosen to succeed him. The two have formed a business partnership and still despise one another. Neva works in the Film industry as a television actress, Jeremy works in Business, and Juliana works as a Chef de Cuisine at the local five-star restaurant. Neva's decision to send Andrew to boarding school was simply because she thinks that she doesn't "have the time" to take care of a child, a decision which upset Juliana.
Living in a Downtown Bridgeport condo is Bridgeport's mayor and the new Mafia Don, whom are Luigi's younger brother and even younger sister-in-law, respectively. Giovanni leads the city through silent corruption, going as far as to wire city money to the Mafia, and blatantly ignores what many view as a "threat" in the Mafia. He met his wife, who is considerably younger and eviler than him, on a vacation to Moonlight Bay, where the then-teenaged Betty Carthage resided with her family--business-people who run the Carthage Financial Group-- in their federal-style mansion. They both dislike children, therefore it is highly unlikely the pair will be having any children.

Romanelli EstateEditThe Romanelli Estate, located near Bogaard Overlook in Bridgeport's wealthy commmunity, is an old Sicilian mansion gifted to Luigi early on in his criminal career after he killed a very influential "marked man." Here, Iva and Neva were raised, as well as Neva's son Andrew (well, here AND boarding school.) The home includes a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and balcony, as well as two additional bedrooms, an additional full bathroom, and a powder room downstairs. The modernized kitchen includes a breakfast nook, and leads out to the back patio where the patio table, grill, pool, and hot tub are. The ground floor also includes a two-car garage, a dining room, a sitting room where the piano is, and a small corridor leading in to a private office once used by Luigi.
Also included on the second floor is another private office used by Jeremy, and a center room including a bar. The property is well-landscaped and surrounded by a fence and secured with a security gate.
- The name "Romanelli" comes from someone I once attended school with.
