Achille Marozzo (1484–1553) was an Italian fencing master of the Dardi or Bolognese tradition. Marozzo was probably born in Bologna. His text Opera Nova dell'Arte delle Armi ("The New Text on the Art of Arms") was published in 1536 in Modena, dedicated to Count Rangoni, then reprinted several times in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is considered one of the most important works about fencing in the 16th century.
