Born in Bologna, Italy, pianist and composer Marco Di Marco studied classical music in his youth with Enrichetta Sansilvestri, and in his late teens he studied harmony and composition with the eminent maestro Giordano Noferini. In June 1966 he graduated in Economics and Commerce at the University of Bologna.
In November 1970 he recorded his first album in Paris, “Un Autunno a Parigi”, with Jacky Samson on bass and Charles Saudrais on drums. His second LP “At the Living Room” was recorded three years later, also in Paris, in trio with Samson and Saudrais.
During those years his fame spread rapidly throughout Europe; Di Marco performed on French and Italian radio and television stations, and participated in many important international jazz festivals.
