Commemorative Coins

Following the request of a coin commemorating the centenary of Marconi Nobel Prize for Physics on December 2009, the Technical and Artistic Commission of The Treasury (Italian Ministry of Finance and Economy) deliberated to issue a coin celebrating the event within the Europea- millesimo 2009 series.

The Italian Mint designed two type of coins:

  • The 10 Euro Silver Coin – 34mm diameter – 22g weight – issue limit 18.000
  • The 20 Euro Gold Coin – 21mm diameter – 6,451g weight – issue limit 5.000

Both coins feature on the obverse a portrait of Marconi with his famous yacht Elettra at his back, inspired by an original picture of his times, and on the reverse a radio receiver made in Italy in the first half of the Twenties (with the Europa Coin logo at the top).

On sale since May 20th 2009.

Comunicating in the Marconian Age

Rome, April 15th-16th 2010
Istituto Italiano di Studi Germanici (Italian Institute of Germanic Studies)
Villa Sciarra-Wurts sul Gianicolo

COMMUNICATING IN THE MARCONIAN AGE
Research project in the centenary of the Nobel Prize awarded to Guglielmo Marconi and Karl Ferdinand Braun

Istituto Italiano di Studi Germanici
Società Italiana per il Progresso delle Scienze
LXX riunione

with the participation of the
Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze detta dei XL
Autorità per le Garanzie nelle Comunicazioni
Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche
Fondazione Guglielmo Marconi

Fondazione Cesalpino

and the sponsorship of the
Ambasciata della Repubblica Federale di Germania

 
Experience and reason together produce the so called “scientific revolutions”. In the first half of the 17th century, with Galilei, the telescope and geometric thinking paved the way towards the victory of heliocentrism on common sense, geocentric. An analogous event, this too developed by the acquisition of fundamental geometric principles, was repeated with Guglielmo Marconi, in the paradoxical wireless transmission of the human message: a premise to man's new historicity on earth and in the universe. 
In the centenary of the Nobel Prize, 1909, jointly assigned to the German physicist Ferdinand Braun, in recognition of his contribution to the discovery, the Germanic Studies/Institute of research and the Sips/Società Italiana per il Progresso delle Scienze (Italian Association for the progress of science) promote an interdisciplinary project on the present and the future of communications: passing through consolidated developments of scientific theory, analyzing applications that up until yesterday were relegated in the imaginary, and opening new possibilities on ulterior advancements, from mathematic formalisms to operative spin-offs. The contrast between rationality, in science and technology, and common sense does not become more minimized but rather heightens with the developments of that which can be called “The Marconian Age”. This meeting provides convincing evidence: with that fluctuating, reciprocal need to go back and forth between theory and procedure, showing the analogies and the links between the two conceptual revolutions, which were previously mentioned.

On October 30th 1938 Orson Welles' radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds panicked the American public because it suggested that an interplanetary conflict had begun with an alien invasion in New York. Inspired by Welles' experience, "Radio Rhythm - performance of voices and sounds" wishes to remember the impressive communicative power of the radio, a prima donna in the communications world at the time. In "Radio Rhythm" one rediscovers the extraordinary absorbing capacity of sounds and voices that were still autonomous from images. A capacity that we feel has remained unchanged even today.

David Sarnoffsarnoff

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.
