Ducati's 95th Anniversary
Details from Livo Lodi at the Ducati Museum...
In the early 1900s in Bologna there was great fervour in the electronics sector. Guglielmo Marconi was acclaimed throughout the world for the invention of radiotelegraphy.
So Ducati started its epic journey with the radio. Adriano Cavalieri Ducati patented a short-wave transmitter, with which he could connect with the United States.
Together with his brothers Bruno and Marcello, on 4 July 1926 they constituted Società Scientifica Radio Brevetti Ducati. The company produced the small Manens capacitor, assembled in a residence with two workers and a secretary.
