Righi and Marconi at the Liceo Righi

Following the celebrations for the 90th anniversary of its foundation in 1923, the Liceo Righi has organized together with the Marconi Foundation, an historical and scientific workshop for the students of the last three grades. The workshop, which will take place within February and April, recreates the relations between the two famous Bolognese physicists, Augusto Righi and Guglielmo Marconi, focusing on a collection of newspapers articles recently acquired by the Marconi Foundation. These articles and newspapers clippings were selected, preserved and sometimes annotated by Augusto Righi himself and after him by his son Aldo.
The workshop, coordinated by Elisabetta Golinelli and Barbara Valotti, will be located part at the Liceo Righi and part at Villa Griffone, with the participation of Maurizio Bigazzi and Mario Giorgi.
It will end with a public conference Saturday, 12 April, in the Liceo Righi lecture hall, where students will describe their work of research and recording.

Marconi was the creator of the present day civilization of the radio. All of those who, with spirit of initiative and perseverance, have brought us to the present stage of development have built on the foundations laid by Marconi. Everyone considered him the tutelary genius of their work.
