“Marconi – the man who connected the world” starring Stefano Accorsi is the first miniseries dedicated to the famous Italian inventor and entrepreneur, father of wireless telegraphy, inventor of the radio and pioneer of modern telecommunications, Nobel Prize winner for Physics in 1909. A Stand by Me production in collaboration with Rai Fiction, produced by Simona Ercolani, directed by Lucio Pellegrini, made on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Marconi’s birth (Bologna, April 25, 1874) and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Radio Rai (Oct. 6, 1924), airing Monday, May 20 and Tuesday, May 21 in prime time.


Written by Salvatore De Mola and Bernardo Pellegrini, with historical advice from Barbara Valotti, director of the Marconi Museum in Pontecchio (Municipality of Sasso Marconi, Bologna) and the Marconi family, the series mixes the historical-biographical genre with the spy story, restoring the contemporaneity of Marconi’s vision and the modernity of his character: inventor, scientist, entrepreneur, who made History in Italy and the world, father of the technologies that changed the life of humanity. A young prodigy who succeeded, thanks to his ingenuity and determination, in creating revolutionary inventions and bringing them to the market, gathering funding and orders around the world, accumulating successes, awards, honors and-particularly in Italy-public appointments, and reaching a level of planetary fame.
