Caption: Engraving of Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937), Italian physicist & inventor of the radio. Tutored privately in his youth, he later entered formal education at the Technical Institute of Livorno. At 21 Marconi developed his first radio equipment, with a range of about 1.5km. The British government became interested in radio, and in 1899 Marconi made a transmission across the English Channel. Two years later Marconi made his first trans-Atlantic transmission, and in 1909 he won the Nobel Prize for Physics. He founded the Marconi Company (now GEC-Marconi), and devoted the rest of his life to radio communications. The engraving was made by Bill Sanderson (1995).
