Bucher, Raimondo

Raimondo Bucher (1912-2008) was born in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and was originally an aviator, who took part in the Second World War. However, it was as a diver and underwater explore that he is best known. Arguably his best know discovery was the locating of the sunken Roman city of Baia in the Gulf of Pozzouli.

In 1957, Bucher discovered the ruins of what he considered to be remnants of an ancient civilisation in the vicinity of Linosa, one of the Pelagie Islands. He speculated on a possible link with Atlantis, noting “that the legend of Atlantis handed down by the Greeks just talk about a land that, in past centuries would have to be in the region of North Africa and Sicily.”(a)

The Pelagie Islands is the current political name of three small  islands, Pelagic Islandscontrolled by Italy, located between Sicily and Tunisia and are comprised of Lampedusa, Linosa and Lampione. Anton Mifsud informs us that the title was originally applied to the three islands PLUS Malta and Gozo and contends that this larger grouping constitutes the remnants of Plato’s Atlantis.
