It seems that you have found some bugs. According to the program
reference, the stanza property can be set to a markup, but there
are two problems here.

1. The following gives a syntax error:
\version 2.5.30
\context Voice = mel \relative c'' { r4 r4 c4 c4 }
\lyricsto  mel \new Lyrics \lyricmode{
  \set stanza = \markup{ "1." \dynamic "mp" }
  \skip 2

2. Trying to work around this syntax limitation, I came up with
  the following example which still does not produce any stanza.
  Replacing the \markup with a string works well:
\version 2.5.30
\context Voice = mel \relative c'' { r4 r4 c4 c4 }
\lyricsto  mel \new Lyrics %\with {stanza = \markup{ "1." \dynamic mp }}
  \set stanza = \markup{ "1." \dynamic "mp" }
  \skip 2

Thanks for your input, but none of the markup commands seem to work :
 % this works
 \set stanza = "mf"

 % this doesn't
 \set stanza = \markup { \dynamic (mf) }    %empty
 \set stanza = \markup { \dynamic ("mf") }  %empty
Is my syntax incorrect ?

I would like to be able to put markup in stanza.
I have a song with 3 lyrics, the first should be   /mp  the second  /p
and the third /f
Can I use markup or the font for p / mp / f   text ?

Yes; see the "\musicglyph" command in "Overview of text markup commands".

Rather, look at the \dynamic command in the same section of the manual.
