I chose in the title of my speech the word “Radiocommunications” instead of Radiotelegraphy or Wireless Telegraphy, because, in today's day and age, the utilization of electric waves radiated through space is not in any way limited to mere telegraphic purposes. Electric radiations, like Volta's currents, were, at the beginning of their practical applications, utilized exclusively for long distance telegraphy, but after recent discoveries and with the widening of our horizons, electric waves were frequently employed not only for what is properly known as Radiotelegraphy but also for wireless Telephony, for circular telephonic transmissions - called “Broadcasting” -, for direction cursors on the sea and in the air and, most recently, also for the transmission of images, facsimile and for vision at a distance.

[Guglielmo Marconi - November 1926]



















Paolo Fabbrifabbri

I'd like to say that we reread Marconi beginning with the future. Speaking of Mc Luhan, we reread the present in the past; speaking instead about real time of electronics, we reread the past beginning with the future. The correct interpretation is that the future, through the present, moves towards the past. This is a new concept for humanity.
