ABOUT ME

Welcome to my website. My name is Mark Granza, I’m an Italian freelance writer and the founder of IM—1776
A former Londoner and occasionally journalist, I write articles and short-essays in both Italian and English on culture, politics, and philosophy, from a conservative and an agnostic perspective, focusing primarily on themes that I hold very dear such as conservatism, meaning, social alienation, and freedom of speech.
My work, among others, has also been published by Areo Magazine, and Merion West.

SU DI ME

Benvenuti sul mio sito. Mi chiamo Mark Granza, sono uno scrittore freelance italiano e il fondatore di IM—1776.
Un ex londinese e occasionalmente giornalista, scrivo articoli e saggi-brevi sia in italiano che in inglese su cultura, politica, e filosofia, da una prospettiva conservatrice e agnostica, concentrandomi in particolare su temi personalmente molto sentiti come conservatorismo, ‘meaning’, alienazione sociale, e libertà di parola.
Il mio lavoro, tra altri, è stato pubblicato anche da Areo Magazine, e Merion West.
