Born in Italy in 1987, after studying and graduating from the Faculty of Medicine of the State University of Milan, he is now a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS). He lives in Milan, Italy.
Passionate about 20th century history, over the years he has developed a great interest in military history and the study, protection and conservation of artifacts from the two world wars.
Within the framework of the Great War, he has focused his interest on the anti-gas protections of the German and Austro-Hungarian imperial armies and the Royal Italian Army. He is also a member of the Italian War History Museum in Rovereto.
Marco Pisani is the author of the following historic publications:
