The institutional fund of the Marconi Foundation at Pontecchio Marconi, holds documents relative to the Foundation starting from 1947, and it is divided in fifteen series.

On June 6th 1999 the fund was declared to be “of notable historical interest” by the archival Superintendent of Emilia-Romagna, according to the following motivation:

It testifies the cultural and scientific activity carried out by the Foundation, which was established as a no-profit organization RD n. 4 1938 n. 354, as of 1939 it preserves testimonies of contacts established with relevant institutions and scholars with the scope of promoting and encouraging scholars and research inherent to radio-electricity.

This small fund consists of only one set, “Correspondence”, made up of the transcription of 15 letters sent, from London, from Guglielmo Marconi to his father Giuseppe. The transcriptions of these letters are also preserved at the Accademia dei Lincei, Rome (Marconi Archive, Part I: Guglielmo Marconi Papers, series VII, box 35, “Transcription of 15 letters of GM to his father, 1896-1899, sent from C.A. Ferrari of Valbona in 1974”). The originals of thirteen of these letters belong to the Henry Willar Lende Collection (San Antonio, Texas).

The Fund was found within the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation Archive when it was being reorganized. Most likely it was given to the Marconi Foundation during the 80's by Professor Giorgio Tabarroni.

The fund, preserved at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, contains documentation starting from Marconi’s arrival in England in 1896, until the end of the following century. 

Giancarlo Dalle Donne has drawn up a partial inventory of the impressive fund, by translating the already existing Bodleian Library’s inventory and integrating it with further information (Christie’s catalogue). pdf_button

Within some months a digitized version of the inventory will be available through the portal Una Città per gli Archivi.
