MARCO GRIECO

A journalist for L’Espresso covering the Vatican, civil rights and society, as well as a collaborator with numerous other major Italian publications.

Born in Pisticci (Matera) in June 1987, Grieco studied classical archaeology at University of Pavia. Before becoming a journalist, he worked in the cultural heritage management sector for museums in Washington, D.C., Pavia, and the Vatican.

Grieco holds a master’s degree in journalism from Eidos Communication in Rome. He began working in television with Tgcom24 before moving to print media with L’Osservatore Romano, and later to digital media. He has freelanced since 2020 for the Vatican newspaper Domani and collaborates with many others, such as L’Espresso, Vogue, Grazia and Linkiesta, covering social issues.

Born when artist Andres Serrano first scandalized the world with “Piss Christ,” Grieco finds reporting on the Vatican to be the ultimate way of showing distance, objectivity and analysis in journalistic practice. He believes in the power of each story to reflect individuals as microcosms for the larger world. His journalistic obsession is the art of the opening.
