Radio e cultura di Marca

For over thirty years a series of events organised by A.R.T. (Associazione Radiantistica Trevigiana) have involved over a fourth of the communities in the Province of Treviso as well as other areas of the Triveneto, Emilia Romagna and Tuscany.

RADIO E CULTURA DI MARCA (The Top of Radio and Culture) is involved in communicating and conveying the history and fascination of the discoveries pertaining to the wireless world and to its inventor Guglielmo Marconi.

This year Galileo Galilei has also been celebrated, 400 years since the first telescope was used to observe the universe just a few kilometres from the event location, and precisely in Padua.

Since its beginning, the winning card of these events has been their alliance with volunteers and their focus on solidarity. All the streets, squares and towns where the events take place, have become over the years, and continue to be, the perfect sites to promote the beauties and products of the Trevigian territory.

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.
