Marco has been imprisoned for almost 25 years in Italian and Swiss jails because of his tenacious and determined struggle against nuclear power and environmental devastation. A year after he was jailed in 1979, he escaped and was recaptured after spending 10 years on the run.
He never bowed his head in prison; on the contrary he has always contributed to the struggle with his rebel and indomitable being, which is still costing him continuous harassment from the prison administration and the judiciary.
