Mariano Gonzalvo Falcón (March 22, 1922 April 7, 2007 ), also referred to as Gonzalvo III or especially as of late by the Catalan rendition of his given name, Marià Gonzalvo, was a Spanish footballer who spent most of his career at FC Barcelona. Gonzalvo was regarded as one of the most talented midfielders in La Liga during the 1940s and early 1950s. On 7 December 1962, Barcelona played a testimonial game against C.A. Peñarol in his honour. He also played for both Spain and the Catalan XI. His two older brothers were also notable footballers. Juli Gonzalvo, known as Gonzalvo I played for RCD Espanyol while José Gonzalvo, known as Gonzalvo II, also played for CF Barcelona and Spain.
