Marabini, Enrico (1923– )
Italian gynecologist and obstetrician who was also active in
the field of parapsychology. Marabini was born on November
12, 1923, at Casinalbo, Italy, and studied at Bologna University
(M.D., cum laude, 1949). He was a member of the Bologna
Center of Parapsychological Studies, and in 1948 he became
one of the founders of the Centro Studi Parapsicologici (Center
for Parapsychological Studies).
Marabini took special interest in clairvoyance, telepathy,
psychokinesis, and mediumship. He worked with mental and
physical mediums for several years in controlled experiments
concerned with psychosomatic aspects of paranormal behavior.
However, he was unable to validate the authenticity of physical
mediumship. He afterward studied quantitative testing methods.
