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.
Gabriele Falciasecca
President of the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation












Elettra back on air

A.R.I. Fidenza Radio Club (Italian Radio Amateur Association) is the promoter of a technical and cultural event to be held in Pontecchio Marconi, Bologna, on the 7th and 8th of June 2014.
The event aims to highlight internationally the historical value of "Elettra" yacht, which was the “mobile laboratory” of the great scientist Guglielmo Marconi, on board of which were carried out important experiments related to radio communications. The vessel was then forge of study to the best applications of Hertzian waves, allowing the continuous progress of radio communications.
In conjunction with the international contest "Museum Ships Weekend Event", radio amateurs of ARI Fidenza Club will activate a radio station nearby the portion of the yacht Elettra kept at the Museum of Villa Griffone in Pontecchio Marconi, to ideally revive his "voice" and allow the radio amateurs all over the world to contact her.
The ARI Fidenza Radio Staff will be on frequency from Elettra during the entire weekend.











Elettra restoration by Rotary

The portion of the yacht Elettra that is hosted in the park of Villa Griffone, has been recently restored thanks to the contribution of the Rotary Club Bologna Ovest "Guglielmo Marconi". The Club celebrates this year 50 years of its activity.
A brief ceremony is held during the afternoon of Saturday, 17 May, at Villa Griffone, to officialise the yacht restoration.

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.
