Marco Marrone holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Bologna (2018). His research was on internships and the informalization of labor in Italy. He was a visiting scholar at York University in Toronto, and conducted research in Canada and India. He is currently a post-Doc fellow at the Center for the Humanities and Social Change of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, where he is working on a project on technology and the transformations of labor. His studies currently focus on the rise of platform capitalism and on workers’ resistance in the food delivery industry. He is also directly involved in workers’ struggles and in the ongoing debate with policy makers to bring on new and positive regulations for the industry. His research interests include the global transformations of capitalism and their impact on both formal and informal work; the transformations of the labour market and its processes (especially those related to technology), the ways precarious workers organize, labour policies and the effects of neoliberalism and austerity policies on the working and living conditions of people. He also collaborates with IRES Emilia-Romagna (Institute for Economic and Social Research) and is on the editorial board of Alternate Route – A Journal of Critical Social Research and on the scientific board of Fondazione Claudio Sabattini. He is the author (with Gianluca De Angelis) of Voucherizzati! Il lavoro al di là del contratto (Socialmente, 2017), and of a variety of articles in both peer review and on-line journals.
