He is currently curator, again with Marco Incardona, of the editorial series of Affluenti for Edizioni Ensemble.

Born in 1978 in Vittoria in Sicily, Marco Incardona grew mainly in Tuscany, in Castelfranco di Sotto, in the province of Pisa, while maintaining strong ties with Sicily and Campania, the mother's homeland. Very important also the repeated stays in Moutier, in the Bernese Jura, which allowed the author to get closer to the French language and to the Helvetic culture.

Enrolled at the Faculty of History of Florence in 1997, in 2001 he was in Madrid for thesis studies on the Mexican Revolution. Graduating in 2003 with a thesis on the Mexican presidential elections of 1934 and on the figure of Lazaro Cárdenas, in 2005 he obtained the DEA (Diplôme d'études approfondies) at the École Française de Rome, always with a thesis on post-revolutionary Mexican politics.

From 2006 he begins to write his first novel silently, out of passion and simply to survive. In 2009 he moved to Paris where he remained, with frequent returns to Italy, until 2011 and where he finished writing his second novel. After returning to Italy for the first time, in 2011 he published his first novel Questions to Silence at the La Nuova Rosa publishing house in Forte dei Marmi.
In 2016 he curates with the poet Edoardo Olmi the Afferenti Anthology, a new Florentine poem, with the Rome Ensemble Publishing House.
In 2017 he released his first poetic collection. I always fall with the Ensemble. In the near future, with the same publishing house, the novel Something was out in Sant'Ambrogio. Since 2018 he has been organizing a project of poetic presentations and meetings at the Rome / Ubik bookshop in Pontedera called Camera 51, which could soon become a new poetic anthology.

Affluenti has become a series of editorial he has directed with Ensemble Edoardo Olmi.
