When in 1895 twenty-one-year old Guglielmo Marconi made his first wireless transmission over land, he became the boy wonder of the world. When subsequently, he made similar transmissions across the Atlantic Ocean, thus proving to the world that his radio-related inventions had immediate and wide-ranging applications for all of humanity, young Marconi ushered in the Age of Communication.
Today, while Marconi's inventions have become all too common in everyday use on earth, his two-way communications systems are bringing outer space into the reach of every earthly human being. Can one deny the network of cell phones that keep billions of people in touch with one another no matter where they are located?
This book, Guglielmo My Beloved, by his devoted wife, Maria, his adoring daughter, Elettra, and his respectful grandson, Guglielmo, is a sure tribute to a deserving scientist who brought good and great things to his fellow human beings.
