Francesco Costantino Marmocchi (August 26, 1805 - September 9, 1858) was an Italian geographer. Following in the footsteps of his father, a professor of physics, he began his studies in the natural sciences. He became involved in the Italian nationalist movement and was an associate of Guiseppi Mazzini, leading to his being arrested and briefly imprisoned before being put under house arrest in his hometown of Poggibonsi. He tried to move to Naples under a pseudonym, but was discovered and was forced to leave, settling in Rome. He then focused on publishing, producing translations, original works, and managing a popular broadsheet dedicated to scientific discoveries.
