Guglielmo Marconi

June 2, 1896.- Guglielmo Marconi (25 April 1874– 20 July 1937) was an Italian inventor, known for his development of Marconi’s law and a radio telegraph system, which served as the foundation for the establishment of numerous affiliated companies worldwide. He shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy” and was ennobled in 1924 as Marchese Marconi. In this image: A Christie’s specialist, George Glastris, shows the Righi oscillator at the heart of the first type of transmitter which is one of the unique archives of the Marconi company – pioneers of wireless communications – on display, 29th January, and is estimated to have a value of 3-4,000 pounds. The proceeds of the sale in April will go towards an electronics training initiative.
