Italian astrologer, journalist and writer. He worked for twenty years at the popular daily of Naples, Il Mattino, writing articles on science, medicine, informatics, literature and astrology.

Beginning at age 20, he worked for five years at the CNR (National Research Council) as Researcher Helper and, for two years, as Electronic Measures Laboratory‘s head in the Istituto Motori of Naples, CNR.

He has been dealing with astrology since 1970. He has written about 65 books that have been well-received in Italy and abroad (France, the United States of America, Spain, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia and Russia). In 1990 he founded the quarterly Ricerca '90, which he's been directing since then.

Since the beginning of his interest in astrology, he has conducted statistical research. At the beginning of the '90s, he obtained solid results with researches on astral heredity on a sample of over 75,000 subjects. Some of his results and methods have later been challenged by other publications.

Discepolo holds seminars, courses and lectures which deal particularly with predictive astrology and aimed solar returns. In addition, he has developed advanced software packages for the study of Predictive Astrology, using an innovative algorithm useful for the dating of events within one year for individuals or groups of people.

Sy Scholfield quotes the back cover of the book "Piero Chiara" by Ciro Discepolo (Ricerca '90, 2011): "nato a Napoli nel 1948 (il 17 luglio, alle ore 05.40)." [Translation: "born in Naples in 1948 (July 17, at 05:40)."]
