Guglielmo Marconi, was an Italian inventor and electrical engineer, known for his pioneering work on long-distance radio transmission and for his development of Marconi’s law and a radio telegraph system.

We consider Marconi as the father of wireless long distance contacts. The first that demonstrated on December 12, 1901 the possibility to transmit wireless radio signals between “the old continent and the new continent”

Marconi commonly credited as the inventor of radio, but amateur radio operators that really knows the details of the evolution of radio communications, recognize to the Italian inventor, the role or real first promoter and marketer of the radio communications, and the person who really demonstrated to a wide public, the possibility to use radio communications on very long distances.  Marconi shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy”.Guglielmo Marconi

An entrepreneur, businessman, and founder in Britain in 1897 of The Wireless Telegraph & Signal Company (which became the Marconi Company), Marconi succeeded in making a commercial success of radio by innovating and building on the work of previous experimenters and physicists.
