Another day in Italy: meet Elettra Marconi...

With a smile she says: "My dad invented the radio!" She is the lovely and sweet Elettra Marconi, daughter of the Marchese, Guglielmo Marconi.
She had been the darling of the Italian press in the 1930s. I asked where she had been born. "I was born in Civitavecchia...and I was baptized by the Cardinal Secretary of State, Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, future Pope Pius XII!"
When she was a little girl she was at the dedication of Vatican Radio, too, with Pope Pius XI. She's been everywhere and met everybody and she's a proud Catholic with the most charm in the world!
