Italian heroes

It's not just Atlas month, it's also Italian-American Heritage month, and thirty-one great Italians are being honoured for their contribution to America and the world -- one for each day of the month -- including Maria Montessori, Arturo Toscanini, Mario Lanza, Christopher Columbus, and the two Enrico's Caruso and Fermi.

Today's hero is Guglielmo Marconi (right), known as the Father of Radio for his experiments with long distance wireless transmissions.

Head here for the full list. [Hat tip Lindsay P]

Saluto gli eroi. Bravo!

Ah, but it was Tesla who invented long distance radio communications.
