Welcome to the official site of Guglielmo Marconi Foundation, established in 1938.
The head office of Guglielmo Marconi Foundation is in Villa Griffone, the place where the Bolognese inventor began to develop the system of wireless telegraphy which then spread throughout the world.
Villa Griffone is located in Pontecchio Marconi, about 15 km from Bologna, Italy. The garden and the rooms of the villa are home to the Marconi Museum which is dedicated to the origins and development of radio communications. Villa Griffone is a National Monument.
A Research Center is also present inside the historical building, where researchers from the Ugo Bordoni Foundation, the University of Bologna and the same Marconi Foundation are intent on investigating in three different areas - history, research and training - making Villa Griffone a point of great interest for a wide audience.
