Marconist of the XXIst Century

The award “Marconist of the XXIst Century” was instituted by the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation in 2005, one hundred and ten years after the first experiments conducted by Guglielmo Marconi at Villa Griffone, as a public expression of esteem to those personalities who, touched in someway by Guglielmo Marconi's work, have demonstrated throughout their career similar skills to those ascribable to the first Marconists. In particular: love of the radio and that which it represents as a means for understanding societies, the drive to work not only for oneself but to generate common benefits and – lastly – a “fondness”, employed in the broadest sense of the term, for the Marconi Foundation and its goals.

The award ceremony takes place each year during the Marconi Day, held on April 25th at Villa Griffone.

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.
