He worked in the parishes of Milan, Rome and Battipaglia. He was admired everywhere for his generosity and patience. He was the first parish priest in S. Leo the Great in Milan. That quarter of the outskirts of Milan was lacking in all comforts, but Fr Marino had managed to know and help everybody. 

For a short period he lived also in London where a new foundation had been opened.

Back to Italy he started being afflicted and disturbed by heart problems.  He was assigned to the shrine of our Lady of Lourdes in Verona.  His great zeal helped him to offer his services as a preacher in many parishes of that diocese.
