Nel 1930 nasce Elettra Marconi

Nel 1937 muore a Roma lo scienziato Guglielmo Marconi (era nato a Bologna nel 1874). Marconi il giorno prima, dopo aver accompagnato alla stazione Termini la moglie (che si recava a Viareggio per festeggiare il settimo compleanno della figlia Elettra), era stato colpito da una crisi cardiaca durante il tragitto per tornare nella casa del suocero, in via Condotti. Qui si spegne alle 3:45 del mattino del 20 luglio. Nello stesso giorno le stazioni radio di tutto il mondo, in segno di lutto, interrompono le trasmissioni per due minuti, contemporaneamente. Il giorno dopo oltre 500.000 persone partecipano ai funerali di Stato.
