Pier Domenico Colosimo
(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.
Jason Colavito has written a highly critical review(a) of Kolosimo’s book* in four parts.
