Marconi Historical Site in Pisa to attract foreign Investor ?

Contributed by LC on Mar 31, 2018 - 12:35 PM

History

Greek based Intracom-Telecom could be the first Interantional investor to contribute to the re-birth of Marconi's station in Coltano, by Pisa, Central Italy. The site hosted the biggest transmitting plant Marconi built in earlier 1900's to link Africa and North America with Italy. The station was destroyed during WWII, never re-built and only a few remnants now testify its importance for radio history.
In a meeting held at Pisa city council on 21 March, Intracom-Telecom's CEO Mohamed Ahmed told his company feels to have a "moral debf" with Marconi as the inventor made possible all means of communications now available as a natural development of his researches.
City council told Euro 1.5 Million could be offered by Intracom-Telecom to help reconstruction of the sole building still existing on the site. A project of about 2.5 million Euro the city council of Pisa is trying to make true after receiving the structure from State ownership and more than 70 years after the station was abandoned following WWII destructions. A space for reasearch in telecommunications has been projected in the area since local associations, the city council and the University of Pisa reconsidered the site as a turning point of radio history in the region.
Coltano station was recently studied by Italradio's scientific committee member prof. Filippo Giannetti:
