According to Wikipedia, the first Marocchino was made in Torino, as an evolution of the “Bicerin de Cavour”. The name “Marocchino”, like for the Cappuccino, seems to derive from its colour: in fact, the marocchino was a type of leather used to make hair bands in the 30’s, and it had a light colour, like the one of the Marocchino drink.
