Marco Docciolini was an Italian fencing master at the turn of the 17th century. Little is known about this master's life; he seems to have been Florentine by birth and seems to have been an initiate of the Florentine fencing tradition of Francesco di Sandro Altoni. Docciolini wrote and published a fencing manual in 1601 entitled Trattato in Materia di Scherma ("Treatise on Matters of Defense"), which he dedicated to the great Florentine general Don Giovanni de' Medici (1563-1621).
