Axel Famiglini is by profession a mechanical engineer and a former member of the Italian Liberal Party. He also has a passionate interest in antediluvian civilisations including Atlantis, which he has studied intently. His views are fairly conventional placing Atlantis in the mid-Atlantic and being destroyed around 9500 BC as a result of a meteorite impact. He believes that this impact is reflected in the myth of Typhon(b). He also thinks that this collision was responsible for the ending of the last Ice Age and the extinction of many species. His views are only available on Italian websites(a).
