The technicians of Vatican Radio have always worked in economics, trying to use tools up to the level of the development of the technique, but also to make them “live” and keep them efficient for as long as possible. Therefore they became fond of their instruments and kept many of them even after they had finished their “active life” in the reproduction of sound or broadcasting of programs.

Thus was born a small, but rich historical museum, currently located in the “Palazzina Marconi”, that is, in the first historical location of Vatican Radio, inside the Vatican Gardens. It collects hundreds of pieces, which allow us to retrace decades of the history of radio technology as it was experienced at Vatican Radio: microphones, recorders, receivers, etc., of the most varied types. There is also a large collection of vintage photographs and films that also allow you to review equipment and systems that by nature and size cannot find a place in a small museum.

1929: Pope Pius XI commissioned Guglielmo Marconi himself to set up the Vatican radio, which came into operation correctly on February 12, 1931, “this is the first time that his voice can be heard simultaneously on the entire surface of the earth”, Guglielmo said .
