Marconi travelled across the Atlantic more than eighty times, he made two world tours and visited dozens of countries, but what he did above all was to connect far distant places by his wireless systems of communication.
At twenty Marconi settled in London, at forty-five he chose to live on a yacht, and at fifty-three he settled in Rome. Yet, he never forgot his roots or the places where his invention took shape: Bologna and the Porrettana, Pontecchio and Villa Griffone.
When he was awarded the Nobel Prize at the age of thirty-five, he was already one of the most famous men in the world. Marconi’s biography is rich in drama and detail. In this reference guide we provide a brief chronology of his life in text and image, which invites you, the reader, to get closer to Marconi and his human and scientific adventures.
