Villa Griffone was the main residence of the Marconi family starting from the mid 1800s. It was here, in his family residence, that Guglielmo Marconi set up his first workshop and performed his first experiments on radio-telegraphy.
In the year after the death of the scientist (1937) the Villa became the site of the Marconi Foundation that housed the Library, the Archive and the Catania-Meucci fund. The Villa is also the site of the Marconi Museum (Museo Marconi) where visitors can retrace the origins and the developments of telecommunication as well as the training and the activities undertaken by the Bologna inventor.
