Benedetto Marcello was a student of Lotti and Gasparini. In 1711 he was a member of the Venetian Council of Forty, from 1730–1738 governor of Pola (Istria), and in 1738 papal chamberlain at Brescia.
Marcello translated John Dryden’s “Timotheus“. He wrote a libretto for G. Ruggeri’s opera Arato in Sparta (1709) and “Il teatro alla moda“ (1720), a satirical account of contemporary operatic practice.
