inventor of a wireless telegraphy system, pioneer of wireless communications, father of wireless, and Nobel Physics Laureate (from 1909)
Died aged c. 63
Guglielmo Giovanni Maria Marconi, 1st Marquis of Marconi FRSA (Italian: [ɡuʎˈʎɛlmo marˈkoːni]; 25 April 1874 – 20 July 1937) was an Italian inventor and electrical engineer, known for his creation of a practical radio wave-based wireless telegraph system. This led to Marconi being credited as the inventor of radio, and he shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun "in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy". Marconi was also an entrepreneur, businessman, and founder of The Wireless Telegraph & Signal Company in the United Kingdom in 1897 (which became the Marconi Company). In 1929, Marconi was ennobled as a Marchese (marquis) by King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy, and, in 1931, he set up Vatican Radio for Pope Pius XI.DbPedia

Electrical engineering milestone. Transatlantic Radio Signals. At Signal Hill on 12 December 1901 Guglielmo Marconi and his assistant George Kemp confirmed the reception of the first transatlantic radio signals with a telephone receiver and a wire antenna kept aloft by a kite. They heard morse code for the letter "S" transmitted from Poldhc Cornwall. Their experiments showed that radio signals extended far beyond the horizon giving radio a new global dimension for communication in the twentieth century

Guglielmo Marconi 1874-1937. The coast at Weston-Super-Mare has historic associations with wireless telegraphy. In 1897 Marconi, co-operating with Sir William Preece and other Post Office engineers, sent the first wireless signals across water from Lavernock on the Welsh side of the Bristol Channel to Flat Holm and Brean Down on this side. The first ultra-short-wave telephone, as an extension of the land-line system, linked Cardiff and Weston in 1932. Marconi's work laid the foundation for the development of radio communication and of broadcasting throughout the world.
