2012 - The Pyramids of Montevecchia (Video Footage)

Best viewed at 720p

The pyramids of Montevecchia, made of soil and stone, were brought to the attention of modern scientists in 2003 by Vincenzo di Gregorio, an Italian architect and independent researcher specializing in georadar (sound-wave) detection of underground features.

The pyramids are located approximately 40 kilometers northeast of Milan and 15 kilometers south of Lecco in Lombardy Italy. Orthodox thinking speculates that these pyramids were built by modern farmers who terraced existing hills.

But the stones occasionally visible beneath the terrace layers tell a different story. Independent researcher Nenad Djurdjević, who's investigating the site since 2007, noted several features of these giant structures indicating both an ancient and an artificial origin.

The video footage includes an overview of all three pyramids, and the exclusive footage of pyramidal structure #3 after forest vegetation has been removed from the eastern side.

Pyramid #2 is a wonderful example of sacred landscape architecture. Shaping the landscape in a harmonius and non-destructive way for all living things was the main quest of the ancient pyramid builders.

Thank you for your enthusiasm! There's also a good Italian Trattoria at the foots of pyramid #2 where you can eat typical Italian meals. Without a doubt, worth a trip or two!
