Kolosimo, Peter (L)
(a) Peter Kolosimo (1922-1984) was the nom de plume of Pier Domenico Colosimo, an Italian writer who can be said to have paved the way for the better-known Erich von Däniken and their promotion of ‘ancient astronaut’ theories. Kolosimo won a literary prize for his Non è terrestre, published in English as Not of This World. In the same book he supported the idea of an Atlantic location for Atlantis drawing heavily on the work of Nicolai Zhirov.
