1874
Guglielmo Marconi was born in Bologna. He was a self-taught scientist who, using some research and instruments developed by Augusto Righi and Temistocle Calzecchi Onesti, created the first wireless radiotelegraph system. In December 1901, he transmitted the first transatlantic electromagnetic signal. In 1909, he won the Nobel Prize in Physics. He was also the first president of Italy’s National Research Council. Of a militant and entrepreneurial temperament, Marconi contributed to the awareness that scientific research should move towards global development instead of simply taking place in localized laboratory experiments.
