Carlo Mattogno (born 1951) is an Italian writer and Holocaust denier.


There is little information available about Mattogno except from revisionist or right-wing websites. According to these sources he was born in Orvieto, Italy and is now living with his family in a suburb of Rome. It is claimed that he has studied Latin, Greek, Philosophy, and has done Oriental and religious studies. There is nonetheless no verifiable evidence concerning the date or length of his studies nor whether he has graduated.[1]

Mattogno is one of those Holocaust deniers, who design themselves as a "school" of historiography. He came to the fore with two pseudoscientific studies, Il rapporto Gerstein: anatomia di un falso (The Gerstein Report – Anatomy of a Fraud) and Il mito dello sterminio ebraico (The Myth of the Extermination of the Jews), which he published in the Italian neo-fascist publishing house "Sentinella d'Italia" in 1985. Further outlets for his works are the neofacist publisher "Edizioni di Ar", noted holocaust denier Germar Rudolf's Vierteljahreshefte für freie Geschichtsforschung and Rudolf's Castle Hill Publishers in Uckfield, UK, the revisionist L'Association des Anciens Amateurs de Récits de Guerres et d'Holocaustes, and Ahmed Rami's extreme rightwing-islamistic website "Radio Islam". Together with his brother, the Catholic fundamentalist Gian Pio Mattogno, he regularly publishes in the extreme rightwing magazine Orion. Carlo Mattogno has further collaborated with Holocaust denier Jürgen Graf. He served on the Advisory Board of the Institute for Historical Review and is an editor of its publication Journal of Historical Review.[1]

Currently Mattogno is editorial advisor for the journal printed by the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust, bodies which promote Holocaust denial.[2]
