On April 11, 1989, after attending a Church near the Vatican, my wife and I were invited by Degna Marconi to have lunch with her at her home in Rome. Degna was the first child of Guglielmo Marconi and Beatrice O’Brien, the daughter of the Irish Baron Inchiquin. During our simple, but exquisite repast, served with grace by this elegant lady, our conversation turned to a little known moment of history related to the sinking of the Titanic.
