Paolo Marini (1940- ) was born in Rome, has a degree in Chemistry and works at the National Institute of Nuclear Physics in Frascati. He has a great interest in prehistory, which has led him to enter the minefield of Atlantology.
He has written Atlantide: Nel cerchio di Stonehenge la chiave dell’enigma (Atlantis: The Circle is the Key to the enigma of Stonehenge). The subtitle refers to his contention that the concentric circles of Atlantis are reflected in the layout of Stonehenge! He further claims that the almost simultaneous emergence of Sumeria, Egypt and the megalith builders was ‘probably’ the result of a cultural impetus given by survivors from Atlantis. Marini identifies the Azores as the remnants of Atlantis. All highly speculative.
