In addition to the Marconi Museum and the Fondazione G. Marconi, Villa Griffone also houses a Radio Communication research centre where researchers from the University of Bologna and from the Ugo Bordoni Foundation have their offices. Partly for this reason Villa Griffone has neither refreshment areas nor facilities for visitors.

Buses with more than 30 people cannot enter Villa Griffone parking, another area at the bottom of the villa (Piazzale del Mausoleo, on the Strada Porrettana) is at their complete disposal.

Dogs and the like, even if on a leash, are not allowed in the Museum.


Getting to the museum

Villa Griffone is located in Pontecchio Marconi, about 15 km from Bologna, along SS 64 “Porrettana”. The closest motorway exit is Sasso Marconi nord (A1). A bus is also available (blue line, no. 92), which leaves the Bologna bus terminal every half hour.

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.
