He was then named as the Italy U20 captain for the 2017 U20 Six Nations.

Riccioni signed a deal with Benetton Treviso in 2017 and the following year took one step closer to a test debut as he was named as an apprentice player in Italy's 6 Nation squad.

As of December 2019, he has made 20 appearances for Treviso and has scored 5 points.

On 18 August 2019, he was named in the final 31-man squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

In February 2021, Riccioni signed a two-year deal with Saracens.

In his debut season for Saracens, Marco played 6 matches and made 10 carries for the Premiership side.

Ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2023, Riccioni has been named in the squad for Italy.
