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.

The invention of the wireless and its successive applications are brought back to life through the accounts given by Marconi's daughter Elettra, his nephew Francesco Paresce, internationally renowned astrophysicist, the president of the CNR Luciano Maiani, the media export Peppino Ortoleva, the film director Alessandro Giupponi, the managing directors of the Marconi Foundation and Museum Gabriele Falciasecca and Barbara Valotti.

Hosted by Ruggero Po.

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.
