The Marconi Museum houses some rarities of the so-called pioneer era (late 1800's - early 1900's) of wireless telegraphy, as well as various models of industrial production of later date.

The uniqueness of the instruments on display is represented by a series of functioning replicas, realized over the years by Maurizio Bigazzi on the basis of accurate historical data and – when possible – utilizing materials and parts of the period.

Such wonders of top-notch craftsmanship, identical in aspect and consistency to the antique instruments (long-lost), also perfectly replicate the original mechanisms and thus the normal functioning of the time, allowing the reenactment of the first historical experiments of wireless telegraphy.

When Marconi grounded his transmitter and then grounded his receiver and let the spark go then the world had wireless telegraphy, and no one had ever done that before. If we must call our aerial waves by some name let us not call them Hertzian waves, but Marconi waves. They are his.
