Deep grief at the Marconi Foundation

People who have visited the Marconi Museum at Villa Griffone since its foundation, might remember the brilliant and amusing explanations that Maurizio Bigazzi used to provide with competence and unique enthusiasm. Many equipments in the museum once belonged to his private collection, which was then given to the Foundation, and many others were acquired thanks to his interest. When Maurizio was speaking it was like listening to Guglielmo himself, so much was his talent in getting into the part.
Now Maurizio is no longer with us. A fast and devastating illness has torn him away from us in only a couple of months, leaving his group of friends and colleagues grieved and astonished. According to his family’s will, we are giving the sad news after his funeral. All the pieces exhibited in the museum will still talk about him, thus leaving us a legacy that we will try to carry on, with the aim of continuing what Maurizio did for the Foundation and for the memory of Guglielmo Marconi. In the next weeks we will communicate how we want to preserve his memory and do as much as possible to keep him with us.

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.
