Freelance journalist, entrepreneur, writer, amateur player and semi-professional referee, Marco has centered his life around the beautiful game. Occupying posts as diverse as Soccerlens Editor-in-chief, Del Piero Offside blogrunner, and "It Ain't Over Till the Old Lady Sings" podcast co-host over the years, Marco is the founder of the mCalcio blog and co-founder JuventiKnows.com (of which he currently is the Editor-in-Chief). His life in the world of blogging has grown exponentially. Marco is responsible for many of the artwork pictures you see on Soccerlens. His best images include 'Share Your Football Experiences' Contest, The Ultimate 5-a-Side Team, Top 50 Most Exciting Teen Footballers (2007), Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: El Clásico Is Almost, Almost Upon Us, Inter Milan vs. AC Milan - A Preview of the 'Derby della Madonnina', and All-Time Premier League Top Scorers. Though the majority of his family hails from Salerno, Italy, Marco was born in Germany (ja!). He has lived in Paris, France for 10 years and moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000, where he's been living among Canucks & French-Canadians ever since. Marco has been a vivid Juventus supporter ever since the Roberto Baggio era. His favorite players are Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Del Piero. Marco Pantanella has been a soccer enthusiast from a very early age, ever since he started kicking the ball around as a little baby in his garden. From then on, enthusiasm became a passion, and passion eventually lead to the creation of his mCalcio.com Soccer Blog in July 2007. Eventually, fate brought Marco Pantanella to write for Soccerlens, and a new Serie A-reporting dynasty was born. :) On top being the Chief Editor and a regular writer for Soccerlens, Marco is also responsible for many of the artwork pictures you see on the website. His best images include 'Share Your Football Experiences' Contest, The Ultimate 5-a-Side Team, Top 50 Most Exciting Teen Footballers (2007), Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: El Clásico Is Almost, Almost Upon Us, Inter Milan vs. AC Milan - A Preview of the 'Derby della Madonnina', and All-Time Premier League Top Scorers.
