Atlantis: a continent engulfed by the sea and the symbol of the ideal city.
Atlantis is a continent which, according to the myth, was engulfed by the sea, but in light of Egyptian texts that inspired Plato, it remains in the mind of man a symbol of a lost paradise or the ideal city. Whether it contains the memories of a truly ancient tradition, or is a matter of utopia, Plato projects his dreams of faultless political and social organisation onto this Atlantis. Atlantis revisits the theme of Paradise, of the Golden Age, which is found in all civilisations, be they at the dawn of humanity, or at its end.
