Caption: Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937), Italian physicist and inventor. Montage of images of the life and work of Marconi, including the instruments used to receive the first transatlantic wireless signals. Marconi is known as the father of long-distance radio transmission and for his development of a radio telegraph system. He shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun. As an entrepreneur, businessman, and founder of the The Wireless Telegraph and Signal Company in Britain in 1897, Marconi succeeded in making a commercial success of radio. In 1924, he was ennobled as Marchese Marconi. After his death in 1937, all radio stations throughout the world paid tribute by observing two minutes of silence.
