Raffaello, one of his sons, also became a sculptor.

Romano Romanelli created both large scale works and smaller statues. As a navigator he traveled around the world with the Italian Navy (he studied at the Navy School), visiting the Mediterranean, North America, and Europe including the Azores and Madeira. He served for three years in the Far East, including China, Japan, Siberia, the Dutch and British East Indies, the Indian Ocean, and the Red Sea.
