The mountains of fear - Musinè and Ciabergia

Thanks to new discoveries, the field of the unknown expands, giving anyone the opportunity to reveal the truth. With this article I will take you to two Turin mountains to discover their mysteries... Happy reading!

Mount Musinè

A few kilometers from Turin there are two mountains, the Musinè and the Ciabergia, on which the remains of a mysterious civilization lost in the mists of time have been found: there are those who think of a culture of pre-Flood beings of enormous proportions, perhaps the Giants of many myths, and there are those who maintain that even alien creatures descended from the sky there, similar to the enigmatic "Round Headed Monsters" of which very ancient depictions have also been found in Africa in the Tassilli...

About 18 kilometers from Turin Monte Musinè is located one of the most mysterious hills in Italy where, as in the devastated land in the famous story by HP Lovecraft, "The Color from the Sky", nothing takes root, nothing manages to grow, nothing lives, except dry overgrown bushes from vipers.

There are many legends that hover around the mountain. The most famous is the one according to which Herod, the ferocious king of Judea, was condemned to atone for his crimes by flying over the gloomy mountain for eternity locked in a chariot of fire. And for this reason, nights in which sudden flashes light up along the slopes of Musinè are not uncommon. There are those who say that they are very banal flashes or ball lightning or will-o'-the-wisps. While UFO enthusiasts have attributed the lights to extraterrestrial spaceships that even set up a secret base inside the mountain.

There would also be an "enchanted cave" around which werewolves would prowl, specters vanishing into smoke, screaming like damned souls, sand, "magic" fires and the presence of buried treasure.

The scholars Louis Charpentier and Mario Salomone see these legends as deformations of real events that reveal the traces of an ancient civilization whose name and culture were lost in the mists of time and which echoes motifs typical of many civilizations around the globe.
According to an ancient tradition, still alive today, the "enchanted cave" on Mount Musinè is constantly guarded by a golden dragon. It is said that a young man named Gualtiero managed to enter the cave which, moreover, was inhabited by a magician. The latter, having been discovered, would then escape on a chariot of fire, returning to his refuge, from time to time, to work some spell or magic, just so as not to lose the habit. The inhabitants of the nearby localities identify the spaceship "before its time" with the fireballs.

But the dragon and the "charitable of fire" or, as others indicate, the "fiery sphere", are motifs present not only in legends and old fairy tales told by the elderly especially to scare children, but also in the culture of other civilizations. In Chinese mythology, for example, we encounter dragons blazing with fire, or in some Asian, American and African civilizations it is the snake that takes the place of the dragon: winged, feathered or stylised, rigid or with spirals, it always symbolizes the infinite and often the flight. Many times it appears next to the sun sign. This can also be seen on the Musinè where it is engraved next to a sun and under a series of small sculptures that would appear to be a star cluster. Furthermore, a short distance from the mountain, near Caprie in Val di Susa, a stone blade overlooks a 150 meter precipice, dominated by solar signs. The rock appears to be a crudely sculpted serpent, similar to the one in Algajiola in Corsica or in certain other silitizations of Mayan art.

And in all of this, someone also noticed greenish phosphorescent fires that greatly sparked the imagination of many.

In reality, however, it could be substances from decomposing animals or the spontaneous ignition of both vegetal and animal resins inside very particular cup-shaped incisions called cupels.

And so we ask ourselves: why would the ancient populations inhabiting those places have lit or would have allowed the lighting of spontaneous fires at night, in small holes, the cupels, laboriously dug into the rock? Most likely, to imitate the sky and stars. In fact, the cupels scattered on the rock indicate an entire celestial map. The entire northern hemisphere is present here, from the Northern Cross, or Constellation of Cygnus, to the two Bears, from Bootes to Cassiopeia, from the Lightning Bolts to the Triangle, from the Dove to Orion's Belt, to the enigmatic Pleiades.

Mount Ciabergia

Mount Musinè has a companion, Ciabergia, 1170 meters high, where extremely strange and fascinating finds have been found. The first is a large stone wheel 64 centimeters in diameter and 14 centimeters thick. Academic scholars have defined it as a "millstone", but some details lead us to think otherwise. In fact, the wheel is engraved with two cups of 12 and 7 centimeters in diameter respectively and a cut that divides the wheel exactly in two. These details bring to mind a Moroccan boulder located near Imzilen and called Tazrout N'Troumit which means "stone of the Roman" or "stone that fell from the sky".

The French ethnologist Jean Mazel observes :

"The Berber definition "stone of the Roman" has no reference to the Roman era, but refers to the word "ROUMI" and its derivatives "IROUMAIN" (plural) and "TROUMIT" ( feminine), designating both something foreign to the human environment and a very ancient era lost in the mists of time, like everything that preceded Islam. It would therefore not be illogical to think that this strange boulder served the cults of a primitive humanity related to that which engraved the famous "round-headed monsters" discovered by Henri Lhote on the walls of the Tassilli. Some farmers claim that this wheel actually fell from the sky with the engravings already made and coming from another world".

On Ciabergia there are also the so-called "hatted boulders". These are two rocks smoothed by glaciers or atmospheric agents on top of which enormous stones have been placed. They are certainly not natural rocks but certainly man-made. On the first rock, 6 meters high, a 3.30 meter long "hat" was placed; on the second, pyramidal in shape and 2.15 meters high, a boulder has been hoisted which rises 7.10 meters from the ground. What is even more surprising is that perfect recesses have been dug under the "hats" to keep them in the desired position.

Some claim that these "hatted boulders" are religious monuments erected in memory of the cult of giants. The cosmologist Denis Saurat states that "the ones who placed the colossal stones were first the thick titans, then the men who thus intended to evoke and revive the gods".To the mythical existence of giants we should also attribute the raising of the Cromelech.

On Ciabergia, at 1100 metres, there is an alignment of monoliths from 1.40 to 2.20 meters high, arranged in a semicircle. The discovery of this sort of Italian Stonehenge was achieved through the "lithic map" engraved on a stone 3.60 meters long and 2 meters wide, 20 meters with cupels and grooves connecting them. The former represent the settlements, the latter the roads to take to reach them.

So here we are again faced with the mysterious world of cupels, this archaic lithic alphabet which, in addition to representing constellations, also anticipates a sort of road signage.
This is what has been discovered so far, and there really is enough to be perplexing. But there are many who maintain that the Musinè and Ciabergia mountains are still far from having revealed to us all the astonishing secrets of their remote and enigmatic past...
