Marino Moretti (July 18, 1885 – July 6, 1979) was an Italian poet and author.
He was born in the port town of Cesenatico, Italy, where his mother instilled in him a love of literature. After a failed attempt at an acting career, he began writing poetry; his first work being published in 1903. During his career he wrote twenty novels, eight books of verses, three book-length memoirs, and many short stories. Among his better known works are The Voice of God (1920) and Widow of Fioravanti (1971). His home in Italy has since been turned into a museum.
