Joined the Dominicans at age ten and lived under their Rule for 70 years. Noted for his devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, his life of prayer, and his ability to counsel and re-invigorate the faith of his brothers. Supported the reform work of Blessed Raymond of Capua. There are reports of people who heard him in conversation with Mary – and they report hearing both sides of the conversation. Legend says that when Marcolino died an angel in the form of a beautiful child walked through the streets announcing the death, disappearing afterwards.
