Léo Marciano Paris is a French luxury fashion house founded in 1970 by the eponymous designer Léo Marciano. The house designed and retailed ready-to-wear and couture as well as leather goods and fashion accessories. While the Léo Marciano label is predominantly known for its womenswear, the company ran a menswear line; the house had a notable following in France and Japan and was internationally distributed through its portfolio of retail stores. The brand was founded by Algerian-born French couturier Léo Marciano in 1970. Trained in industrial design, Léo Marciano began a teaching career in drawing before shifting his direction towards garment design and opening his eponymous fashion house. Beginning with the creation of feminine silhouettes, notably dresses and blouses, his first pieces saw success among Paris’ boutiques and abroad; the press developed an increased interest in his creations as they became more elaborate and began to constitute collections of coordinates in Italian silks and exclusive prints, fine wools and English tweeds and flannels.
The French weekly "Jours de France" contributed to his success when it published his work. By 1972, the company had grown, orders were coming from all over the world. Rather than outsourcing to factories, Léo Marciano decided to build his own production atelier to fulfil orders and control the quality of his product line. In this atelier of over one hundred employees, he created a research space, using machinery to service a manufacturing. Léo Marciano was granted the "Couture" label by the French Ministry of Industry and Commerce, became established in the luxury market; the fashion house expanded and freestanding Léo Marciano boutiques opened in Paris at rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, rue de Cambon, rue François 1er, avenue Victor Hugo. "Shop-in-shop" concessions opened. In Paris, Léo Marciano became the couturier of choice of women in politics, he collaborated with renowned photographers such as Guy Bourdin, Peter Knapp, Sam Levin, Jean-Loup Sieff for the creation of the label’s look books and ad campaigns.
The Léo Marciano brand was established in Japan with the help of French multinational Péchiney Ugine Kuhlmann, which offered the brand the support needed to develop commercial activities in Tokyo. In 1978, thirty-five boutiques opened throughout the country. Léo Marciano was the first European couturier to do business directly with Japan without having to go through the local intermediaries that controlled imports at the time. In Japan, he had the opportunity to work on the innovation of new materials. Commissioned by the Japanese multinational Toray, he collaborated on the development of a new material – alcantara – which he proceeded to use in his collections. Today, this material is world renowned and used in fashion, interior design, the automotive industry. In 1982, Léo Marciano launched a menswear line; the collection was introduced in its womenswear stores. The interest grew and a Léo Marciano stand alone menswear shop opened on rue Francois 1er; the menswear line was produced by Italian tailoring company Brioni.
The menswear boutique went further by offering a made to measure tailoring service. In 1985, Léo Marciano ceased his activities due to health reasons and closed the doors of the prosperous fashion house

Marciano Carlos Alberto Vink is a former Dutch football player. Throughout his career he played as a right defensive midfielder and as a right central defender, he most notably played for Ajax and PSV in the Eredivisie and Genoa in the Serie A. Injury prone since the beginning of his career, he was forced to quit prematurely at the age of 28. Born a few months after the 1970 FIFA World Cup into a football crazy family in Suriname, Vink thanks his middle names to the feats of the Brazil national football team that year, as he was named after its captain Carlos Alberto Torres; the Vink family moved to the Netherlands, it was there that young Marciano learned his trade at TOS Actief and ADE in Amsterdam. A prolific young player, Vink's talents were soon noticed by the Ajax scouts and before long he was admitted to play for one of the greatest sides in European football history, he swiftly rose through ranks of Ajax's youth Academy with a number of talented players such as: Dennis Bergkamp, Frank de Boer, Ronald de Boer, Clarence Seedorf, Ronald Koeman and Marco van Basten.
Vink was heralded to become the next Frank Rijkaard. His rise through the youth ranks and his debut at the age of 18 in 1988 were, however, no indication of how his career would unfold, he would play 108 matches in his 5-year stint with Ajax until coach Louis van Gaal decided to dismantle the team that won the UEFA Cup in 1992 to make way for a younger generation of players such as Patrick Kluivert, Clarence Seedorf, Michael Reiziger and Edgar Davids. In 1993 Vink therefore opted for Italian side Genoa. Vink's spell with Genoa turned out to be a disappointment, he played only 13 matches, in a season which saw Genoa narrowly avoid relegation to Serie B. He decided to move back to the Netherlands with top side PSV Eindhoven. Although PSV Eindhoven was progressively starting to challenge Ajax for the domination of the Eredivisie, Vink did not play the part his coaches might have had in mind for him as he was sidelined through injury. In 1997 his injury plagued stay with PSV came to a grinding halt as Luís Figo made an uncompromising tackle in the Champions League match FC Barcelona - PSV.
He spent the next two seasons rehabilitating, but to no avail. In 1999 his contract expired and he was not extended, he played only 48 was left with a damaged reputation. He decided to join 1st division outfit ADO Den Haag on amateur basis in order to revitalize his career, but only played 5 competition matches. After this, one think that the career of Marciano Vink was over. However, Vink showed his resilience by returning to professional football in order to show the critics that he had just been unlucky in his career and that he was indeed a quality player, he played for one more season with the Ajax satellite club Ajax Cape Town. The 1992 UEFA Cup winner, turned out to be a more than welcome addition to the squad. In 2002, he became a player agent. Marciano Vink has capped twice for the Netherlands at the height of his career. At the age of 20 he was called up by national team coach Rinus Michels for the European Championship qualifier matches for Sweden 1992 against Malta and Finland, he earned two caps in one month, but was never called up again due to injury
Battle of Marciano
The Battle of Marciano occurred in the countryside of Marciano della Chiana, near Arezzo, Tuscany, on August 2, 1554, during the Italian War of 1551. The battle marked the defeat of the Republic of Siena in its war against the Duchy of Florence, resulted in Siena losing its independence and being absorbed into the Duchy of Florence. In 1554, Cosimo I de' Medici, with the support of Emperor Charles V, launched a grand campaign to conquer Florence's last remaining rival in Tuscany, the Republic of Siena, his army was under the command of Gian Giacomo Medici, Marquess of Marignano, best known as "Medeghino". The Florentine-Imperial troops were divided into three corps: Federico Barbolani di Montauto, with 800 men, landed in southern Tuscany to conquer the area of Grosseto; the Sienese entrusted the defence to Piero Strozzi, a fierce rival of the Medici family and a general in French service. French troops, as well as some Florentine exiled by the Medici, took part in the war under the Sienese aegis.
The Florentine troops approached Siena on the night of January 26, 1554. After an initial failed assault, the Marquess of Marignano laid siege to the city, although his men were not numerous enough to cut it off from the countryside. Both Baglioni and Montauto failed to capture Grosseto. French ships harassed the Florentine resupply lines at Piombino. Cosimo replied to the initial setbacks by hiring Ascanio della Cornia with 6,000 infantry and 300 cavalry, waiting for further Imperial reinforcements. On June 11, Strozzi attempted a sally to relieve the pressure on Siena, leaving some French units in the city, he moved towards Pontedera. This did not prevent Strozzi from joining with a French contingent with 3,500 infantry, 700 horse and 4 cannons in the territory of Lucca. On June 21, Strozzi conquered Montecatini, but did not feel confident enough to join in a pitched battle against Medeghino, waiting instead for further French reinforcements which were to arrive at Viareggio, he had, in total, 9,500 infantry and 1,200 cavalry, while Medici had 2,000 Spanish, 3,000 German, 6,000 Italian infantry, as well as 600 cavalry, not to mention further troops from Spain and Corsica which had landed at Bocca d'Arno.
His brother, Leone Strozzi, had been killed by an arquebus ball in the course of the struggle for Grosseto. Strozzi therefore marched back to Siena. In July, he failed to capture Piombino, in southern Tuscany, the only port from which the French supplies could reach Siena. On July 17, conscious that only a victory in a pitched battle could save the city, he tried a third sally in the Val di Chiana, in direction of Arezzo, leaving 1,000 infantry and 200 cavalry as a garrison under Blaise de Montluc, his field army included 14,000 infantry, about 1,000 cavalry, five guns. His force overwhelmed the small Florentine garrisons on his way, although the attempt, on July 20, to conquer Arezzo failed, he managed to capture Lucignano, Marciano della Chiana and other centres in the following days. After some days of inactivity, Medeghino moved to meet Strozzi. After some initial skirmishes, the two large armies clashed when Strozzi, short of food, decided to retire towards Lucignano in the night of August 1.
In the morning of the following day, it was clear that his manoeuver had not been successful, he was forced to lay battle against the Florentine-Imperial troops that were stalking and harassing his moving troops. The Sienese had: c. 1,000 French-Sienese horse on the right wing. Strozzi's army occupied the slight slope of a hill. Il Medeghino deployed 1,200 light cavalry on his left wing, backed by 300 Uomini-d'Arme under Marcantonio Colonna; the centre infantry corps was composed by 2,000 Spanish veterans and other Corsican recruits and 4,000 German Landsknechts under Niccolò Madruzzo. The right wing was formed by 4,000 Tuscan, 2,000 Spanish and 3,000 poorly trained Roman infantry, in three rows, with the few artillery pieces available behind; the reserve included 200 Spanish soldiers, veterans of the Ottoman–Habsburg wars, a company of horse arquebusiers from Naples. The battle began with the attack of the Medeghino's cavalry wing, whose impetus routed its French-Sienese counterpart, which fled towards Foiano.
It has been reported that the French commanders of that unit and Fourquevaux, had been bribed by the Medeghino with 12 tin flasks filled with golden coins. To counter this first setback, Strozzi decided to launch down from the hill with the German infantry in his center. A chaotic melee ensued but soon the momentum of the Sienese attack began to wane under the fire of the Imperial artillery which disorganized the Swiss attempting to relieve the first line; when Il Medeghino ordered his men to launch themselves against the enemy the German and Swiss began to panic. This turned into a route when Colonna's heavy cavalry, who had pursued for a while the French-Sienese cavalry, attacked the Germans, fighting across the Scannagallo, from behind; the French infantry on the right wing maintained its battle order and, surrounded on every side, defended until the end.
