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.
