Caption: Augusto Righi (1850-1920), Italian physicist. Righi worked at the universities of Palermo, Padua and Bologna. His research involved the study of electrostatics and electromagnetism. One of his students was the Italian electrical engineer and radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi. Righi's key work was 'L'ottica delle oscillazioni elettriche' (The optics of electric oscillations, 1897). This photograph is from a book of Righi's collected writings: 'Scelta di scritti' (Bologna, 1950). Righi was nominated 40 times over 16 years (1905 to 1920) for the Nobel Prize in Physics.
