Princess Elettra Marconi, December 15th, 2017

Princess Elettra Marconi, the 87 year-old daughter of Guglielmo Marconi, at the Italian Embassy to the Holy See in Rome during the conference on the evolution of the radio.  
In the picture with Elettra is her son (next to her), the Prefect of the Vatican’s Communications, Mons. Edoardo Vigano’, and next to him Italian Ambassador Pietro Sebastiani.

It was also a way to celebrate the February 12th, 1931 event when Pope Pius XI used a microphone which had been designed by Marconi to transmit for the very first time the Pope’s message to the rest of the world through the us of Vatican Radio. 

On hand during the conference was also Italian author and DJ, Fabio Volo.
