Not everyone knows that in 2001 in the Montevecchia Regional Park and Curone Valley, in the province of Como, during an aerial survey were discovered by the architect Vincenzo Di Gregorio three “pyramids” with steps having the base, sides and slope identical, difficult thing to find in nature.
Pyramids in Egypt, in southern Mexico, Central America. And, as most people know, there is one in Rome. Pyramids for different styles, for materials, for the purposes. Only those of Egypt, in fact, were built as tombs. Following this discovery, the Di Gregorio led, with the collaboration of geologists, astrophysicists and archaeologists, a series of studies and concluded that, in an unspecified era, an ancient civilization has shaped these hills of limestone , removing the excess material, and creating these three pyramid structures to religious-astronomical purposes and not for agricultural purposes because of the difficulty of cultivation of the soil.
The highest – which measures 150 meters – would be a gigantic pyramid, higher even than that of Cheops (146 m) on the Giza plateau in Egypt, and the pyramids of Giza those of Montevecchia have in common an unusual approach similar the three stars of Orion’s belt. These pyramids were detected by observation of satellite and aerial imagery. Today they are completely covered by grass and vegetation, and have the appearance of natural hills. In reality are obvious traces of the stone blocks put together by man and have been the subject of study and research by numerous experts.
The three pyramids are an artificial slope, the terraces, it remains evident on the first two, while the last is completely covered with vegetation. It ‘impossible to give a certain date of the pyramids, which would require a lot of in-depth excavations and studies, but what is certain is that in this area were found in the late Seventies, human remains dating back to the Neanderthal man (60,000 BC) and the man sapiens (32,000 BC).
The first pyramid is called “cypress hill” for the presence at the top of twelve cypress distributed around a mass of granite that give the place a certain mystery. The second pyramid is the most impressive because it strips and then you may notice the regularity of the steps. It looks like beyond belief to the Egyptian pyramid of Saqqara. At the base there are still remains of the ancient wall that surrounded the hill. The top is a flat, typical of the pyramids-sanctuary that were used as astronomical observatories. The third pyramid, however, is completely covered with vegetation and therefore it is difficult to identify.
The three pyramids of Montevecchia represent a unique case. Equally unique is that the distance between them is proportional to the equivalent of Giza and the stars of the constellation Orion. Almost paradoxical hypothesis that here, very close to Lecco, is worshiped Orion (the Egyptian Osiris) as in the temples of the Pharaohs. But it should not exclude a primitive form of “calendar”, perhaps combined with cults that you lost track, mystery or devotional. If so, the three pyramids of Montevecchia could indicate a civilization so advanced as to have astronomical knowledge and appropriate techniques.
The three pyramids of Montevecchia have a new chapter and everything still to understand. And to see, perhaps visiting a natural park that does not skimp other landscape wonders, flora and fauna.
