Mysterious Lucania

Updated on July 9, 2014

Italy's Pandora's Box

Introducing Lucania, the least-traveled and most forgotten land in Italy. Lucania had a thriving powerful civilization, birthed into a region that magnetized the wealthy, famous, wise and mysterious. Its name is still in use today regardless of the official name change to Basilicata in 1932.

The word ‘Luc’ grounds its roots deep within diverse cultures, whose meanings plummet into an arrow of a few words: white, bright, luminous, shining or clear, lucid. It’s interesting to note that Leucòcito in Portugese means ‘white blood cell’. The etymology of lucent in the mid-15c meant "shining, bright, luminous," and from Latin lucentem / lucere meant " shiny, lucid, clear, bright". The land may be simply named after its ivory-colored clay soil, but the sword is sharp and esoteric cuts profoundly into Lucanian. Dealing with a land full of esoteric ancient knowledge hidden in its woods and walls, a more appropriate reason for its name and explanation of its past must exist.

This historical journey began in 2002 with a book: Holy Blood, Holy Grail. It was given to a man named Glinni as a gift. Not interested, he put it on a shelf for weeks. One day while deciding to skim through it, he spotted odd details about his birthplace Acerenza embarking him on a search for answers. He was vaguely familiar with his roots, research ensued. Now we have unimaginable lost puzzle pieces to add to new historical chapters that are building a massive historical beanstalk.

Discoveries have been surfacing non-stop over the last 8 years. For the open-minded there's much in this 'forgotten' land, host to a 'lost civilization' that would be empowering to follow, submersed in nature and never traveled. The 'Knights Templar' and their kinhood were familiar with Lucania: Druids, saints, magicians, and the Glinni-Gaiman clan (Scots of Glenn). This family turned the 'switch' on to this 'Mysterious Lucania'.

This mysterious region began it's esoteric mini-military kingdom with the Normans holding concentrated powers in its rare sacred geometries. New enigmas continue to swim to the surface, Celtic-riddled knots, Templar paintings, odd symbols, baphomets, Irish burial mounds, underground rivers, pagan bas-reliefs. Uncountable famous names were magnetized to Lucania: Christopher Columbus, Dante, Leonardo da Vinci, Pythagoras, Dracula, Robert Guiscard and others. Lucania was the birthplace of the Knights Templar leader Huge de Payen or Ugo di Pagano in reality whom was an Italian not a Frenchmen.

Not a single thought was taken down, recorded, published or advertised during the earlier years. Slowly in 2005, Mysterious Lucania was born, and shortly after Fabio Tamburini and his crew believed so whole-heartedly in Glinni's story, his documentary aired on Italian television entitled 'In the Name of the Templars.' This program dove deep enough into the various historical curiosities and painted a rich Medieval picture that rocked Italy like a storm. Changes of history were discussed and validated, and a gallery of new theories, ideas, and speculation came forth. A second part was created running 20 minutes in 2007.

Mysterious Lucania is honored to act as a portal through which this phenomenon is peeking through, with it's new choreography for the curious at heart. For once this powerful ancient military kingdom reigned in the lower heart of Italy.

Magical rituals haunted its people, but empowered others. Were they experts with occult magic or simply aware of the powers that awaited within the land, within themselves? Secret organizations saturated Lucania for centuries. We've fallen into a world of paganism, secret societies and hidden wisdom. Within a short-span official history had been challenged by knowledge and new discoveries. Roughly six years ago, a psychic was called to Lucania from Milan. She travelled the eight-hour distance only to fill 'doom' at the entrance of the Acerenza cathedral. What powers were manifested here? And which ones remain?
