He owes his chamber music training to the Trio di Trieste, with whom he did his postgraduate work at the Fiesole Music School, the Chigiana Academy in Siena and the Duino International School of Music. At a very early age, he was drawn to performance practice on original instruments, delving deeper into the study of ancient music with ever increasing interest under the guidance of Gaetano Nasillo at the Milan’s Civic School of Music, obtaining his diploma cum laude in 2003. Marco collaborates with numerous ensembles – Accademia Bizantina, Europa Galante, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Il Giardino Armonico, Le Concert d’Astrèe, Les Ambassadeurs, Il Sonar Parlante, Ensemble Pygmalion, Orquestra Barroca de Sevilla, Il Pomo d’Oro, Ensemble Accordone, Divino Sospiro, Ensemble Claudiana – and with artists like Fabio Biondi, Ottavio Dantone, Giovanni Antonini, Enrico Onofri, Christophe Coin, Vittorio Ghielmi, Emmanuelle Haim.

!In 2002, he co-founded AleaEnsemble along with violinists Fiorenza de Donatis and Andrea Rognoni and violist Stefano Marcocchi, with the aim of exploring string quartet repertory from the Classical and Romantic periods on original instruments. With AleaEnsemble, Marco recorded Mozart’s Divertimento for string trio in E-flat Major, KV 563 for the Italian label MVC, Luigi Boccherini’s six quartets op.
