GUGLIELMO MARCONI (1874-1937)

Marchese Guglielmo Marconi was a brilliant manipulator of other scientist’s findings, especially those of RUDOLPH HERTZ’s breakthrough discovery of radio waves in 1888. Hertz had died shortly afterwards in 1894.

After moving from his large family estate in Italy to England, where his experiments with radio waves generated much interest, he set up the Marconi Wireless Company Limited in 1900.
The event which made him world-famous was the two thousand mile transmission of Morse code across the Atlantic in 1901.
