Rai Radio 1

Temporary transfer of the episode "Radio anch'io", that is broadcast from Villa Griffone, Pontecchio Marconi, the place where 115 years ago a still very young Guglielmo Marconi, passionate about electricity, conducted his first experiments which were destined to revolutionize the system of communications.

28 aprile 2013

Presso il Ristorante La Lampara, nello splendido scenario del porto di Cattolica, è stato presentato il volume fotografico "Attimi. Sulle tracce di Guglielmo Marconi", che propone una ricca galleria di scatti ad opera di Antonio Barbieri e alcuni contributi storico-rievocativi, tra cui "Guglielmo Marconi, uomo di mare".

Ha introdotto l'incontro Luciano Volpi, promotore del volume e infaticabile organizzatore culturale. È quindi intervenuto il Sindaco, Piero Cecchini, annunciando che è in progetto a Cattolica un museo da dedicare alle radiocomunicazioni, proprio a partire dall'illustre pioniere Marconi e dal suo legame con la città di Cattolica.

È stata poi la volta di Wilma Galluzzi, che ha ricordato due personaggi del territorio (Salvatore Galluzzi per la marineria, Augusto Gabellini per le auto) e ha raccontato in sintesi la lunga storia de La Lampara e della famiglia di Massimo Arduini.

È infine intervenuta Barbara Valotti, che ha disegnato un ritratto del celebre inventore, rimarcandone l'indiscutibile vocazione marinara e le ripetute presenze in riviera (tanto che la Villa di Letizia Majani con il tempo è divenuta "Villa Marconi").

Un menu di prelibatezze concepito ad hoc per gli ospiti della Lampara ha concluso egregiamente la serata.

Iniziativa promossa da Fondazione Marconi, Lions club, Banca Popolare Valconca, Avangard Look.

25-28 aprile 2013

La trentaquattresima edizione di “Vulandra”, festival internazionale degli aquiloni, si è svolta da giovedì 25 a domenica 28 aprile 2013 nel parco urbano Bassani di Ferrara.

Una delle novità proposte è stata la ricostruzione del primo collegamento radio transoceanico (dicembre 1901), a cura di ARI Fidenza e ARI Ferrara, con la consulenza di Fondazione Marconi.

L’aquilone è stato ricostruito con materiali moderni ma secondo il modello originale e ha sollevato a circa 120 metri da terra un'antenna ricetrasmittente filare di 30 metri, per permettere di collegare il festival alle stazioni radioamatoriali di tutto il mondo.
