Franz von Mendelssohn, who later Italianised his first name, was the son of the banker Robert von Mendelssohn [de] and his young wife Giulietta. She was a daughter of the fashionable Florentine portraitist Michele Gordigiani. After her husband died in 1917 she moved in with the cellist Gaspar Cassadó, who was 26 years younger than she was, and moved back to Italy, leaving her teenage children, Eleonora [de] and Francesco to look after the large family home at Königsallee 16 in Berlin's Grunewald quarter.
