I thank Mr. Hildebrand for the very kind but too flattering remarks that he has made of myself and of my work in Wireless Telegraphy.
I believe that one perhaps of the least thought of advantages enjoyed by the winner of the Nobel Prize is that he is asked to visit Sweden and thereby given an opportunity of appreciating the illustrious count of Linné, Schéele, Berzelius, and Arrhenius.
Thanks to the high standing which science has for so long attain and to the impartiality of the Nobel Prize Committee, the Nobel Prize for Physics is rightly considered everywhere as the highest reward within the reach of workers in that branch of Natural Philosophy.

[from the Guglielmo Marconi's speech at the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm, December 10, 1909]




















The Guglielmo Marconi Foundation promotes independently or in conjunction with economic partners, the study and development of specific projects for the creation of infrastructure and applications, to improve the quality of enjoyment of content related to Marconi Museum, history and Radiocommunications more generally to the area that gave birth to great scientist Guglielmo Marconi.


I doubt that there has ever been a useful invention for which all theory, all practical applications and all instruments were the results of the work of a single man. Progress is only made by building on foundations placed by others and this is valid for both pure and applied science.
