«Marina Serpagli, (mezzosoprano, Italy) fresh, humorous, true fulfillment of folk spirit, goodhearted voice of wisdom.»
Danas, serbian daily newspaper (2016)
«Marina Serpagli is, among the others, the singer whose timbre and volume are similar to the ones of a mezzosoprano “spinto” (…) Her voice is “generous” indeed (…)»
Nicola lischi, music critic (2016)
«Marina was a witty and trustworthy confidante and provided an enjoyable interpretation of Arnalta in Monteverdi's "L'Incoronazione di Poppea". As a professional singer she was always well prepared, eager to fulfill all directors' needs and very personable. I highly recommend her.»
