Marconi Museum – Bologna

Marconi Museum – Bologna

The Marconi Museum is located in Villa Griffon, the residence of Guglielmo Marconi and the place where he carried out his first experiments.

The Museum’s halls illustrate some fundamental developments in radio communications in the twentieth century, notably the transition from radiotelegraphy to radio and broadcasting.

On display, there are also interesting documents relating to the training of Guglielmo Marconi (exhibited in the famous “silkworm room”).

He was responsible for developing a remote telecommunication system via radio waves, i.e. wireless telegraphy or radiotelegraph.

This evolution led to the development of radio and television and all modern radio communication systems and methods that use wireless communications.

These discoveries earned him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1909.
