Marzamemi is a southern Italian hamlet of Pachino, a municipality part of the Province of Syracuse, Sicily.

Marzamemi is located by the Ionian Sea coast of the island of Sicily and is 3.97 kilometres (2.47 mi) from Pachino.[1] It has a population of 367.[1]

In 1959, a Byzantine merchant ship was found near Marzamemi. The vessel, which might date back to the 6th century during the reign of Justinian I, contained decorative elements of a church’s nave.[2]
