The Marano Field is an area in the southern sky which was extensively surveyed in different wavelengths. In the optical, multicolor imaging, slitless and slit spectroscopy, and variability studies were performed. In the X-rays the field was observed with ROSAT for a total of ~60 ksec integration time, and in the radio band the region was surveyed with the ATCA at 1.4 and 2.4 GHz. Including the recently performed ISO observation and our new XMM-Newton deep pointing, it is one of the best studied regions of the sky at all wavelengths. We present first results of a deep (~100 ksec) XMM-Newton observation of the Marano Field which shows a great number of formerly unknown X-ray sources.

Key words: Missions: XMM-Newton - objects: Marano Field - galaxies: active - X-rays: galaxies - surveys
