Marco Pozza (1979), priest of the parish for the prison Due Palazzi of Padua, is a “shoddy priet to whom God intends to credit sympathy, using mercy,” as he loves saying about himself. Disgusted by the fact that the whole world knows the Little Prince, but almost no one knows who his literary father is, he literally in love with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry until obtaining the Doctorate in Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University with a dissertation on Citadel, a post-work of the French writer-aviator. He lives to write, when it would be very normal writing to live: even in this case he is a naysayer. He started with Penultimate lizard at the right (Marietti publisher 2011) and Counterattack (Sao Paulo publisher 2012): he was rewarded by the word of mouth of the young people met in schools and theaters. Banned by churchgoers, he found the best inspiration to try to be closer to God: The embarrassment of God (San Paolo publisher 2014) and The Ambush of God (San Paolo publisher 2015) are making him one of the most promising and followed writer in the national panorama.
With his irritating and never obvious style, he intervenes when the opportunity makes the thief: Il Mattino di Padova, Ilsussidiario.net and TV2000 are his journalistic family. He has already begun to write his first encyclical, if there will be the chance of being chosen as a Pope. The incipit is already written: “I hated every minute of training, but I said: don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion “ (M.C.Clay).
