Basili Collection

In November 2013 the Basili family from Altopascio (Lucca) donated to the Marconi Foundation a collection of antique radios – 64 pieces in total – belonging to Paolo Basili. Shortly before his death, Mr Basili had in fact expressed his intention of leaving to the Marconi Museum “the fruit of his lifelong passion”, as testified by his daughter Natàlia.

On 25 April 2014, on the yearly occasion of the Marconi day, the donation was made official by Gabriele Falciasecca and Natàlia Basili.

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.
