  • Description

    The Marchesa Marconi, in London for celebrations to mark the centenary of her husbands birth, stepped back into history today.

    With her daughter, the principessa Ellettra Marconi-Giovanelli, she visited the site on the roof of the Postal Headquarters in St. Martin's Le - Grand from where her radio-pioneer husband gave the world's first public demonstration of wireless communications.

    During the visit Marconi's widow and daughter examined radio equipment similar to that used in the first historic broadcast. This equipment forms part of a major Scientific Museum exhibition marking the centenary of the radio pioneer's birth.
