Montovolo Retreat 13


From Montovolo to Volterra: found again all together the symbols of the Etruscan Oracular Centers

(Versione in Italiano)

I have gone to visit the Guarnacci Museum of Volterra a! A very wonderful exhibition because I have found again anywhere, in his showrooms, all the symbols that allowed me to identify in Montovolo an Etruscan oracular center and perhaps a navel of the Etruscan culture in the VI-V century B.C . What I have seen at Volterra Museum is a further confirmation of my theory! Now, I don't want to disclose the particular objects which I have found, but I invite my readers to go to visit this Museum remembering all that I have reported in my preceding Montovolo Retreats web pages 1. I wish that also you could feel the strong emotions observing those particular urns, or particular finds, which never were analysed and photographed by other scholars. But now that I have seen them, understanding their crypted symbolism, all together as they waited me, this vision has provoked to me an enormous joy. Also my wife that accompanied me , although she has been very doubtful at the beginning of my iconological researches, remained very amazed seeing some carved funerary urns with the symbols which I have hypothized used also for the Etruscans. These confirmations will have many others important implications on my search which now is crossing the dark centuries of first Christianity to come to our days and that I hope to publish in their totality one day.

I can now say only that also my theory that explains observing these symbols the very ancient oriental origin of Etruscan culture, as I have reported in my another web site2 and in a documentary product 3 and distributed in America, finds confirmation in the remains of Volterra. As I already reported the Accadian and Sumerican origin of the Etruscan language and therefore of their culture has also been demonstrated by Giovanni Semerano 4, eminent philologist dead in the July 2005. Unfortunately many contemporary accademics continue to oppose to his studies because they would demonstrate that many of their studies were based on axiomatic and ideological theories 5. In addition Giovanni Semerano demonstrated that the so called Indoeuropean language is a mere fable. I hope that the new generations of accademic historians are more released from the power of the University Chairs and can recognise the immense work of this solitary eminent scholar.

Also the symbols of the egg, of the cross subscribed in a circle, of the two doves, of the snake, of the "arboreal codes", all among them connected and that I have found all together in Volterra Museum, and of which I believe to have decoded the meaning, they also bring us to Anatolic and Mesopotamic culture as origin of the Etruschans and therefore also of us because to this people, our progenitor, we owe our western culture and that we continue to transmit their peculiarity with our genome.



a) Volterra is named Velathri by Etruscans. Giovanni Semerano reported in his book , Il popolo che sconfisse la morte ed. Bruno Mondadori , 2003, pg 70, the etimologic meaning of this name deriving from accadic bél.asri.bél (prince of the place)

Giovanni Semerano had received in Florence, July 2001, the "Silver Plaque" by the Tuscany Regional assembly that the president Riccardo Nencini attributed to him for his hypothesis on the "mother of all languages" which for Semerano is the Acadian-Sumerian.
