Guglielmo Marconi (25 April 1874- 20 July 1937) was an Italian inventor, best known for his development of a radio telegraph system, which served as the foundation for the establishment of numerous affiliated companies worldwide. He shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in physics “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy” and was ennobled in 1924 as Marchese Marconi.

During his early years, Marconi had an interest in science and electricity. One of the scientific developments during this era came from Heinrich Gertz, who, beginning in 1888, demonstrated that one could produce and detect electromagnetic radiation-now generally known as “radio waves”, at the time more commonly called “Hertzian waves” or “aetheric waves”.
