Mura, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Mura (1943- ) is an enthusiastic supporter of the idea of a Sardinian Atlantis, following in the footsteps of Giovanni Lilliu. In 2009, he published Sardegna: l’isola felice di Nausicàa [1570] in which he expanded on his ideas.

Caralis is an old name for Cagliari, the Sardinian capital.<
