“Aachen Charlemagne?  It is not located in the city of Aachen.  “Enough of the bickering between Syncloists and non-Synclodicists.”

San Claudio

The debate over the Carolingian presence in the Val di Chianti, which has never subsided since Don Giovanni Carnevale raised the issue years ago, has regained new vigor in recent days. The debate was revived by a conference of the Center for Historical Studies in Macerata, which took up the topic last weekend with experts arriving from Germany to Montecusaro. The members of the association do not agree at all with the fact that Aachen is not in the Marche region Giovanni Carnevale Study Centre Who once again confirm their theses, as the architect Arduino Medardo differs and also highlights: “The analysis is complex, we cannot end up with ‘sanclaudisti’ and ‘non-sanclaudisti’ like the ultras of two football teams in a pub.”

“We are surprised that a serious association like the Centro Studi Storici Maceratesi promoted a conference arguing that Charlemagne did not even pass by chance in the Marche region, in San Claudio,” explained the head of the Center for Studies of Giovanni Carnevale, Domenico Antonozzi.

“German professors have been invited to say that Charlemagne did not even know that the Marche existed – On the contrary, it would be desirable to unite efforts and use resources to develop and deepen the validity of Professor Carnevale’s theories, based specifically on certain historical sources, added Giuseppe Schipa, Vice President of the same study center that bears the name Carnevale.

Antonuzzi and Sheba remember the news of the earthquakes. Thirteenth chips for San Francisco; The Capitole de Felice, the times and distances of the travels of the Emperor and the Popes, the toponymy and architecture of the churches in our lands, as well as those which some sources say were built on the foundation of the Palatine Church at Aachen as a model, such as, for example, the Germigny des Prés in present-day France, all In plan it does not exactly correspond to the city of Aachen, while it is almost identical to the church of San Claudio. Not to mention the accounts of Charlemagne’s biographers. «These are just some of the points that Giovanni Carnevale has explored during 40 years of serious and meticulous research and which have been illustrated, through tests and documentation, in his 15 publications. The professor’s studies are currently receiving the attention of researchers and academics from the United States, England, Belgium and Germany. Proof of this is the recent article in the prestigious British weekly magazine The Economist. However, the Germans would find it difficult to abandon Charlemagne’s Aachen, especially because of the economic benefits developed by cultural tourism, tourism that would instead bring luxury and prosperity to the Macerata and Marche regions as well.

“How did researchers, during 200 years of research and excavations in Aachen, not find a single Carolingian artifact? – concludes President Antonuzzi – Today it is increasingly difficult to support the increasingly shaky theory according to which Charlemagne could have been based in the inhospitable lands of Germany at that time.

Members will remember that the reflections of the Study Center are not intended to provoke harsh and useless debates, but rather call for serious and polite debate, as taught to us by Professor Giovanni Carnevale himself.
In fact, study center volunteers are present every weekend in San Claudio to welcome visitors who need a more detailed explanation of Francia Piscina and discovering Aachen in the Val di Chianti.


Arduino Medardo

Also included in the historical comparison is the Arduino Medardo, an expert architect of medieval structures who has a series of publications on the subject to his credit.

“The 58th Congress of the CSSM, whose stated theme was the march of the Middle and South of the nineteenth century, ended a few days ago. Tenth to twelfth. Therefore, it seems clear to me that the result expected by the organizers of the conference was not a history of the region in the Middle Ages, but rather a refutation of the theses put forward by Don Giovanni Carnevale, with which I agree in essence, but not in many details. In my personal opinion, the conference was a negative indicator of a worsening situation because among the hundreds of people who listened, there were almost no young people. It seems that our future, which should be fulfilled by our cultural heritage, that is, our history, that is, our children and grandchildren, has shown no interest. I justify the youth because from what I read and heard, The conference ended with a list of carefully selected documents and in a final struggle between “sanclaudisti” and “non-sanclaudisti” like the ultras of two football teams in a pub. All speakers assumed that dating is a scientific fact and requires a method. To prove a historical thesis and not file a lawsuit, one should provide all available documents on this matter. Especially those that have real scientific value in their essence because they deal with scientifically proven physical phenomena. For the sake of brevity, I will merely summarize the contents of some of them; I will be able to provide all the details related to the known texts in which these documents are published. In the documentation of the Carolingian era, there is mention of a physical phenomenon that we know well here: the earthquake. Two occurred in Aachen in 801 and then in 829, and are cited in the Annales Laurissesses in Germany and one in the Vatican Library (Document No. 905). I would like to start by saying that a document about a well-known and studied physical phenomenon is much more convincing than a voyage log with Latin toponyms carefully translated into “pro domo sua” by biased historians. When it comes to earthquakes, it is advisable to take a look at the European Standards for Seismic Design, which refer to the two competing sites in Aachen: for Bad Aachen, the seismic acceleration is 2.5 meters per second squared, i.e. 475 periodic years. For Val di Chianti, the seismic acceleration is 5.3 meters per second squared, and the period is 29 years. There is no point in discussing quantities that are technically intuitively understandable, but I feel compelled to emphasize the following: either European legislation has replaced Val di Chianti with Bad Aachen or two historical earthquakes occurred in Aachen 28 years apart from each other; They couldn’t have happened, Unfortunately for us, who in the Macerata seismic region, regardless of what the experts of historical sciences and their methodologies say about the same phenomenon, deal with Spoleto in the year 1600, Mr. Petrucci is the author of a text entitled “A Brief Treatise on the Earthquake, printed in Spoleto in the year 1646. The text explains that “ On the 6th of May, at two o’clock in the morning, there occurred a “fearful earthquake” which, among other damages, “in Rome in the world of the Metropolis, threw down the entire roof of the roof beams” of the Church of San Paolo, in France, of Charlemagne’s magnificent palace at Aachen. Earthquakes occur in concentric circles and from Spoleto to Rome it is the same distance from Coridonia. You don’t need a degree in history to see that the Annales earthquake of 801 and the Petrucci earthquake are the same, but this indisputable fact was outside the door of the conference, along with Aachen in the Val De chinti. What I honestly don’t understand is that instead of trying to highlight the cultural heritage of the area for tourism purposes, while making money elsewhere with 19th century rebuildings, it is not highlighted that the area is home to at least 125 Benedictine monasteries. From the early Middle Ages, some of which contain also fine frescoes of the 5th and 6th centuries, six noble palaces of the Carolingian era, unique in the world and three or four portals of the Pepened Palaces, as well as a large quantity of other works of beautiful art and landscapes.. Since I have been able to appreciate the monuments of Marche and understand what they bear witness to, I have asked myself why the history taught in school is different and after more than ten years of research and some recurring thoughts I have tried to explain it all in my latest book. The reason, as usual, is of a political nature and begins when Albornoz conquered the Carolingians in 1300. The Pope also became king and to justify his temporal rule acquired by arms and not by law, he forged papers by destroying the real ones. The documents that two of Charlemagne’s nephews took with them, partly to France (now) and partly to Germany, when they divided the empire among themselves, were preserved, and were later enriched with a certain amount of forgeries, to conceal the illicit acquisition of Babalina and above all in the nineteenth century To support Bismarck’s second Bundesreich constitution with nationalist references to its epic roots.
