The Servant of God, Fra Marcellino da Capradosso OFM. Cap., was born Giovanni Maoloni in Castel di Lama, Ascoli Piceno, Italy, on September 22, 1873, and joined the Franciscan Capuchin Fathers at Fossombrone, in 1902. Transferred to Fermo the following year, he served as questant for six years.

A humble, hard working and exemplary Franciscan, who passed long hours in prayer during the night, praying for the salvation of souls, he contracted peritonitis in 1908, enduring the illness in a remarkable silence and patience, while undergoing several painful medications, including an operation without the use of chloroform, clutching a Crucifix.

Fra Marcellino passed away in odour of sanctity on February 26, 1909, aged 35, in Fermo. His remains were interred in the Capuchin vault at Fermo's Cemetery, where they rested until 1996, when they were transferred to the Capuchin church of Fermo.

The process for his beatification, concluded in Fermo in 1956, is currently being studied at the Sacred Congregation for the Causes of Saints in Rome.
