Bigazzi Family

In June of 2015 the Bigazzi Family, in memory of Maurizio, donated to Marconi Foundation a functioning replica with components of that time made by Maurizio Bigazzi himself.


A complex of spark transmitters for radiotelegraphy (Marconi system) used in the first experiments in Italy and in England in the 1896-1898s.











Michael Pupinpupin

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.
