BIOGRAPHY

Marco Visconti is a London-based antiques and rare book trader and consultant. He specialises in esoteric literature, with a particular interest in Thelema and Crowleyana. As Online Shop Managing Director of Treadwell’s Books, a hub of international expertise on Western esotericism, Marco has optimised daily operations and online sales, and has contributed to building a strong network with distributors, editors, writers, academics, and collectors worldwide. In August 2017 he moved on to managing the newly formed Special Projects department, focusing on events and media outreach, and eventually moved on to start building his own book trading company – soon to debut.

As Partner of renowned Italian business consultancy Visconti Lab from 2008, Marco focused on overseas operations. Since 2006, Visconti Lab has delivered strategy, business innovation, competitive analysis, financing, franchising, mergers and acquisitions to corporate and individual clients.

A former music professional with an international career spanning over 15 years, Marco Visconti has gained credence as a countercultural figure in the alternative underground scene. He is a founding member of electro industrial band XP8, and was a live member of Faderhead, Unter Null, Grendel, and VNV Nation. As DJ Azrael, his ministrations included Resistanz Festival, Club AntiChrist and Slimelight (UK), Death Guild (San Francisco, CA), Summer Darkness (Utrecht, NL), and Zoe Club, Decadence, and Ritual (Italy), and countless others.

A Thelemite and Freemason, Marco Visconti has been a prominent member of the international esoteric community for over two decades. Italian science-fiction author Francesco Dimitri pays tribute to Marco’s underground persona through his signature character Dagon in La Ragazza dei miei Sogni. A film adaptation was released in 2017 (trailer here). Marco was responsible for the translation of numerous key esoteric texts from English to Italian, such as Michael Bertiaux’s Lucky Hoodoo and Cosmic Meditation, and Kenneth Grant’s Against the Light.

He currently organises and runs a series of workshops, where he teaches the basis of Thelema, Rosicrucianism, and Esoteric Freemasonry to a wider public outside the bonds of oaths and secrets.

“I believe there is very little that when posed to Marco he will not be able to give you an informative, straight and in-depth answer to.”

"Thelema Without Tears was a fantastic course led by Marco. As a group we did some fantastic work together, things you wouldn't imagine possible at your average course... I believe there is very little that when posed to Marco he will not be able to give you an informative, straight and in-depth answer to. As someone who absolutely knows their stuff, I highly recommend Marco and his work."

“Marco Visconti’s ‘Thelema Without Tears’ course at Treadwell’s ticked all the boxes in this respect”

"In Magic of all types, you can only learn so much from books and from the Web. There is no substitute for being taught in a formal, structured way by someone who is experienced and knowledgeable, having "risen through the grades" of an established magical order. This is especially true of Thelema, with its multi level complexities of symbolisms and meanings. Marco Visconti's "Thelema Without Tears" course at Treadwell's ticked all the boxes in this respect, with its perfect balance of Theory, Group Practical Work and Solo Praxis performed as homework. It was a course I had to be on, to quote one of the other group members. It left me with a deeper understanding of what Crowley's Theology, Philosophy and Magick was all about. As an added bonus, we were, as a Group, given the experience of working with the Goetia, something that I have long wanted to do but don't think I'd have dared to do by myself."

"Marco possesses a rare quality in this field: deep knowledge and understanding of magickal practice coupled with absolute integrity. I took his Thelema Without Tears course in 2019 and was blown away by the depth of theory and actual practice that presented. He delivered something that was at every step above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend his work and trust his guidance explicitly. A true Adept!"
