Giancarlo Barbadoro (1943-2019) was a journalist, writer, poet, musician and radio/TV anchorman.
His main field of study was that of Celtic and pre-Celtic traditions and of the natural peoples (or indigenous peoples) of the planet in their philosophical and mythological aspect.
Always engaged in the battles for the rights of the voiceless, in 2001 he founded the Ecospirituality Foundation, an organization in consultative status with the United Nations, with a staff composed of Native Americans, Native Australians and Native Europeans, which works to protect of the spirituality and sacred places of natural peoples. With the Ecospirituality Foundation he has also always fought for the rights of animals, a subject that deeply fascinated him and to which he dedicated many of his poems.
He was UN delegate as a representative of five indigenous organizations from various continents. In 2011 he founded the School of Kemò-vad Sole Nero for the dissemination of the ancient discipline of meditation of druidic origins also known as "The Art of Gesture".
His eclecticism has led him to range in various artistic fields including painting, poetry and music. His musical research was inspired by the "Alchemical Art of Silence", a path inspired by the ancient traditions of the druids of Northern Europe, which he expressed through the flute and keyboards.
He has written numerous essays on mythology, meditation and pre-Celtic traditions and published various collections of poems and music albums. He was a member of the LabGraal musical group as a flutist, poet and composer.

The beginning: Astronomy, archeology and unconventional phenomena

His interest in the ancient traditions was born at an early age when he encountered a traditional indigenous community of the valleys of Piedmont by chance, which introduced him to an unknown history that will guide his research. This encounter sparks his interest in ancient lost civilizations, megaliths, meditation and spirituality.
He has been interested in avant garde science fields of unconventional studies from an early age, as well as all those extraordinary events that remain on the margins of mainstream science. In the early 60s he began his collaboration with the magazine Clypeus, cronache dell'insolito (Chronicles of the Unusual), directed by Gianni Settimo. In 1965 he and the editorial staff of Clypeus organized the 2nd National Convention on Clipeology at the Main Hall of the Convitto Nazionale Umberto I, with the participation of researchers and writers including Raymond Drake, Benedict Lavagna and Roberto Pinotti. The convention was broadcast by RAI television, Swiss television and various Italian newspapers.

In 1967 he founded the Cultural Center Jules Laforgue in Turin, whose name is inspired by the French poet. The Center deals with astronomy, archeology, ufology, parapsychology and astronautics. In the same year he founded the magazine Laforghiana, independent publication of science, literature and history.

In 1970 he founded the Astronomical Observatory of Ceres (Turin, Italy) together with Giancarlo Rolando, then Mayor of Ceres, and Mario Anesi, becoming its deputy director.

In 1971 he began his collaboration with Corrado Tedeschi, founder of the Tedeschi publishing house in Florence, writing for Il Giornale dei Misteri, magazine founded and run by Tedeschi that covers ufology, clipteology, avant-garde science and astronomy, from its earliest issues.

In 1972 he undertook collaboration with Peter Kolosimo, pseudonym of the writer Pier Domenico Colosimo, writing numerous articles on the subject of the Templars and pre-Christian religions for the magazine Pi-Kappa, founded and directed by Kolosimo.

His research on ancient European myths and his passion for archeology led him on the trail of Rama, an ancient legendary city that supposedly existed in a large area of Piedmont in archaic ages. On the trail of the legend, Barbadoro conducts research on the ancient megalithic remains of Piedmont with the archaeologist Mario Salomone. Together they discover the megalithic complex which features the "Toltec mask" of Villar Focchiardo of great historical value, as well as other similar structures that are today concealed to protect them.
In the course of his research, Barbadoro brings to light the ancient myth of the city of Rama, which remained alive until the end of the 19th century and then buried in the folds of history. Barbadoro's rediscovery of the myth of the city of Rama in the 70s has led to its reappearance in history, news, novels and television shows that still pose ancient mystery.
It is in those years that Barbadoro set in motion a cultural foyer to discuss unconventional archeology, mythology and science; he frequented the esoteric salons of Turin of that period, collaborating with the likes of the diviner Benedetto Lavagna and the researcher Gustavo Rol.
He was asked to conduct a course of "esotericism and meditation" for a historical esoteric body of Turin, in order to qualify its members.

A new cultural era

In industrial dormitory that Turin had become in the late 70s and early 80s, Giancarlo Barbardoro launched an initiative designed to spur the city's culture and inspire countless cultural trends.

He founded the Cultural Center of Spazio 4 at the time which dealt with archeology, astronomy, exobiology, parapsychology, meditation and spirituality. The aim was to propose research between science and spirituality, without borders or ideological barriers. This initiative was linked to a European spiritual renaissance in those years that saw the birth of a cultural movement now known as New Age.

The initiative Spazio 4 aroused great interest, especially among young people and is a powerhouse that will have inspired many of Turin's spiritualist movements of the 80s, as well as a new form of culture that will later influence music. A melting pot of experiences that inspired many cultural and musical realities still present today in the city of Turin.

Philosophy, Meditation and Music of the Void

In the early 80s, as a result of his research journeys in Brittany in the footsteps of Celtic culture, he began a relationship with the indigenous communities of the place, in particular with the ancient Druidic faction of the Broceliande forest, from which he learned the musical technique of the Nah-Sinnar, music for meditation, also known as "Music of the Void", and the Kemo-vad discipline, dynamic meditation also called "The Art of Gesture". His travels in Brittany serve as inspiration for his philosophical essays and meditation including Ricercatori d'Infinito (Researchers of Infinity), Armonia e Creatività della Meditazione (Harmony and Creativity of Meditation), La Proposta Shan (The Shan Proposal), and L'Uomo e la Morte (Man and Death).

Sharing common interest in research on the myths and origins of the Graal, Barbadoro begins his collaboration with Rosalba Nattero in those years. Along with Rosalba Nattero, he embarked on journeys of research to Northern Europe where he met the community of the modern-day Skulds of Oslo and Hague as well as the Druidic Gorsedd of the County of Meath (Ireland) and Inverness (Scotland). Meetings that will prove valuable for research on ancient traditions of the Native Europeans with the contribution of narratives on the events of ancient Norse cultures, which will result in the essays “Il Cuore Antico” (The Ancient Heart) and “La mitica Città di Rama” (The Mythical City of Rama).
The meeting with Abbey Auffrai of Carnac and annual contacts with the Druidic Community of Paimpont (Brittany) will prove valuable for the dissemination of music for meditation and the ancient discipline of Kemo-vad. The books "Il mio flauto, la mia Anima" (My flute, my Soul" and "Danzare nel Vento" (Dance in the Wind) will originate from these encounters.

Giancarlo Barbadoro with Eileen Caddy, founder
of Findhorn Foundation (Scotland)

In 1986 in Forres (Scotland) he founded the international movement New Earth Circle, along with Rosalba Nattero, Eileen Caddy founder of the Findhorn Foundation and representatives of philosophical movements from various countries around the world. The New Earth Circle aims to promote a planetary meditation every Tuesday evening.
It is at this time that in London he encountered several members of philosophical movements interested in promoting planetary meditation of the New Earth Circle, including Sir George Trevelyan, the Russian princess Helena Moutafian, Austrian Baroness Edmee Di Pauli and the novelist Barbara Cartland.

The New Earth Circle serves as vehicle to promote several initiatives on meditation, such as collective meditations in contact with nature and encounters of meditation at international events.
In 1987 he founded the magazine Shan International Magazine with an international staff. The magazine was published in English and presented in London during the Mind, Body & Spirit Festival held at the Royal Horticultural Hall.

In 1988, Barbadoro held a concert for meditation at the Mind, Body & Spirit Festival of London, performing the Nah-Sinnar music on flute. In the same year, he debuted Shan International Magazine in Florence during the international conference "Florence Convocation" in which the entire editorial staff, consisting of editors from the UK, Holland, USA and Bulgaria, participated. In1988 he and the Shan International Magazine editing staff took part in the international congress "Spiritual Renaissance" in Wassenaar, Netherlands, which involved representatives of European philosophical movements such as Elinor Detinger and Baroness Edmee Di Pauli.

In 1990 he founded the magazine Meditazione Oggi aimed at spreading the philosophy of meditation, which includes the bulletin "New Earth Circle News".

In 1991 the Department of Education of the City of Turin places his method "Integrative Dimensioning" based on meditation with the Nah-Sinnar, the "Music of the Void" and the ancient practice of Kemo-vad, in extracurricular educational activities in the school system in Turin. In the same year, the Air Force performs an experiment on the effects of meditation using Nah-Sinnar, monitoring via electroencephalogram; given the positive effects on the lucidness of the volunteers, a proposal is made to include this method in pilot training programs.
In the field of music for meditation, he conquers a space that attracts those seeking benefits and inspiration in music; his "Music of the Void" is adopted by schools of meditation, music therapy and yoga.

In 1994 he activated free courses on meditation, which will continue annually drawing large crowds, and in 2002 began seminars on "Meditation and Ecospirituality" for the Department of Neurosciences - Section of Psychiatry of the University of Turin. The Seminars are an integral part of the Specialization Course in Transcultural Psychiatry.

Poetry, art, music and Celtic culture

In 1987 he joined the project LabGraal (Laboratorio Musicale del Graal) headed by Rosalba Nattero, leader and vocalist for the group. A musical project that introduces Celtic music in Italy, inspired by Celtic tribal spirit. Giancarlo Barbadoro participates in the group as a flautist, poet and composer to interpret more intimate soul. Many of his poems focus on the condition of slavery faced by animals in our society.

Triskel Edition published his collections of poems "Sotto le Stelle, riflessioni di un alieno", "Nel Segno del Graal", the latter accompanied by the illustrations of the painter Angela Betta with a foreword by the Department of Culture of the Piedmont Region. He presented his latest collection of poems "Il Giardino dei Giunchi", published by Editrice Keltia, at the International Book Fair in Turin in 2013.
He has participated in several poetry recitals with international poets, such as the Lakota Gilbert Douville, the French poet Nicole Cordier and the African poet Brice Tjomb. With the latter he published a collection of poems in French "Les Chants de Mère Terre" dedicated to the sacred mountain of the Bassa People of Cameroon.

His artistic talent is also expressed through painting and his works have been showcased in solo and group exhibitions. Back in the 70s, he participated in a collective art exhibition organized by the magazine "Illustrato FIAT", winning first prize in the painting competition as part of the exhibition, with his work "Dopo l'Uomo".

Giancarlo Barbadoro with
the LabGraal group in Brittany

With a melting pot of avant-garde artists based in Turin, in 1988 he founded the Andromeda Art and Culture Gallery that organized art exhibitions, cultural salons and meditation meetings.

His musical development takes place in close contact with the traditions of northern Europe and Native Americans, in the course of his frequent trips to Brittany and through frequent encounters with the cultures of Native American nations. Encounters with the intimate aspect of these traditions led him to develop his own personal style of music that conveys the poetry of inner silence.
Playing with musicians from the Hopi and Druidic traditions, Giancarlo Barbadoro acquires music experience characterized by traits of the inner self. Along with Rosalba Nattero has made the album "Kachina" in Arizona inspired by the music of the Native Americans of the Southwest.
He has released several albums with LabGraal and as a soloist performing music for meditation on the keyboard and flute. Titles include: In the light of Andromeda, Shan the meditation, Dreaming (recorded in Australia with Aboriginal musician Jida Gulpilil) and the recent The Green Path focused on the shamanic flute.

In order to promote music and Celtic culture he and Rosalba Nattero founded the Cultural Association "Grotta di Merlino" (currently "Garage di Arte & Cultura") in Turin, a club that brings together Celtic enthusiasts, with subsequent opening of offices in the cities of Rome and Asti.

In 2003 he founded the movement "Nel Segno del Graal" (In the Wake of the Graal) with a group of artists made up of musicians, writers, and painters. Along with the coterie of artists that make up "Nel Segno del Graal", he draws up an artistic manifesto that was presented at the Garage di Arte & Cultura of Turin. He and the other members of the group develop a series of artistic events, art exhibitions, concerts and theatrical performances.

In 2017 he founded the Artists United for Animals association with Rosalba Nattero, a partnership of artists, from any artistic field, who intend to spread an anti-species culture.

His work of spreading the Celtic and Native People culture of the planet has also given rise to the publication of numerous essays released by Triskel and Keltia Publishers, including Il Cuore Antico, Le Feste dei Celti, Natural Peoples and Ecospirituality, Rama Vive and La Mitica Città di Rama, as well as articles and interviews on newspapers, magazines, radio and television.

Natural Peoples and Ecospirituality

In 1993, during a trip to Arizona, he and Rosalba Nattero contacted the Apache community of the San Carlos reservation. This led to collaboration with Ola Cassadore, leader of the Apache Survival Coalition, in order to protect Mount Graham, the sacred mountain of the Apaches. Along with Rosalba Nattero he was nominated "representative of the Apache Survival Coalition". The collaboration ensued throughout the following years with meetings both in Arizona and in Italy, during which he promoted initiatives in support of Apache and collected funds for their struggle in defense of the sacred mountain.

In 2000 he founds the Ecospirituality Foundation NGO with Rosalba Nattero, Maurizio Poletto, Roberto Garosci, Nick Youldon, Anna Maria Bonavoglia, Camilla Novelli, Marco Pulieri, Luca Colarelli, Gianluca Roggero, Gilbert Douville (Nativo americano Lakota and Traditional pipe bearer) and Daniel Zapata, (Native American from the Mexican Chichimeca nation). The founders draw up the "Manifesto of Ecospirituality" for the protection of the cultural and spiritual rights of Indigenous Peoples and Native Europeans in particular. The manifesto is also a commitment to the protection of animal rights. The core group is joined by Ola Cassadore and Mike Davis of the Apache Survival Coalition.
With the Ecospirituality Foundation he has organized numerous conferences and meetings on the theme of Indigenous Peoples and Ecospirituality, with particular attention to the case of Mount Graham, promoting charitable initiatives for the Apache Survival Coalition.

Always with the Ecospirituality Foundation he strives to promote numerous charities dedicated to shelters for animals in need and children charities. In light of his commitment for the protection of animals, the Ecospirituality Foundation, with the commission SOS Gaia, joined the Consulta delle Associazioni di Volontariano Animalista della Città di Torino (Group of Animal Right Advocate Associations of Turin).
In those years, organizes the Ecospirituality Foundation in Rome, at the Capitol, the event "SOS Gaia, a help to the planet and all its inhabitants", an initiative that fits in the events organized in defense of animals.

Presentation of the book "Natural Peoples and Ecospirituality" at the Leichhard Forum, Sydney

In 2001 he published the essay "Natural People and Ecospirituality" written jointly with Rosalba Nattero and Ola Cassadore, and the book receives the encouragement of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Proceeds from the sales of the book are devolved to help native communities.
The book is used as a reference by many native communities because it underlines the moral identity of Natives from all continents, emphasizing the spiritual bond that exists between them and highlighting the vast differences that exist between the dominant society and Indigenous Peoples.
The book is also added to the Municipal Library of Turin and its province and presented by the Councilor for Culture for the Province of Turin to all school headmasters. The book "Natural People and Ecospirituality" was translated from Italian into English and French and presented at international conferences in Europe, Australia and the USA. The text was later added to the UN library catalog and is exposed in the libraries of the United Nations in New York and Geneva in the "Human Rights" section.

During the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples of New York in 2010 he appeals for the protection of the cultures of Native Europeans and holds a conference on indigenous communities of northern Italy. He has renewed his annual commitment with the United Nations participating in the sessions of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples of New York and the Expert Mechanism on Indigenous Peoples in Geneva.

The Stone Circle of Dreamland

In 1999 he began construction of his project the "Stone Circle of Dreamland" within the confines of the Natural Park of La Mandria with the intent of providing continuity of megalithic art present all over the world, evidence of an ancient culture that is still alive today also in the territories of Piedmont. Giancarlo Barbadoro, in choosing the place where the cromlech was to be erected, was inspired by contact with representatives of ancient indigenous cultures still present in Piedmont. Contacts with the elders of the "Celtic families" provided knowledge of an ancient sacred place where many Druidic ceremonies were celebrated centuries ago; and by selecting the place indicated to him, Barbadoro wished to symbolically continue this tradition.
The Stone Circle of Dreamland is an artistic expression inspired by "Land Art", an architectural sculpture made within the natural environment with elements chosen and collected in nature.

The project was completed in 2006 with the laying of a second circle of 12 standing stones each 2 meters tall and with the laying of four boulders as cardinal points. The complex has an inner diameter of 40 meters. The work, created on the foundations of archeoastronomy according to the ancient science of the Celts, was created with the intention of bringing visitors to an experience of intimate contact with nature, allowing them to interact with astronomical events and the environment. The Stone Circle of Dreamland has generated considerable interest among researchers and artists from around the world, becoming a theater in nature that hosts artistic and spiritual encounters, musical performances by LabGraal, poetry readings, flute guided meditations and stages of Kemo-vad.

The project "Rama Vive" and the Sole Nero School of Kemò-vad

In 2007 he and Rosalba Natero launched the project "Rama Vive" (Rama Lives) for the rediscovery of Native European traditions, with particular attention to the indigenous traditions of Piedmont. His research on the myths and ancient Celtic traditions led him to an interest in the myth of the ancient city of Rama, a gigantic metropolis that supposedly existed in the Susa Valley, Piedmont, in the archaic ages. The result of his research is expressed in the book written by Rosalba Nattero "Rama Vive" published by Triskel Edition, which is presented at numerous conferences in Turin and its province through the documentary "Rama Vive, megalitismo e tradizioni celtiche del Piemonte" (Rama Lives, Megalithism and Celtic Traditions of Piedmont); for which Barbadoro wrote the screenplay. The documentary was inspired by the eponymous book "La mitica Città di Rama" always written with Nattero and published by Keltia Editrice and presented at the 2013 International Book Show of Turin.

The Conference "Alla ricerca di Intelligenze Diverse"
organized by Barbadoro with international researchers

Also in 2007 he became a member of EUS-European UFO Survey, the European group of researchers and independent scientists; together they organize the conference "Alla Ricerca di Intelligenze Diverse" (In Search of Different Intelligences" with the participation of astronomers and researchers at the Empire Cinema Theater of Turin, in March 2008.

In 2009, he undertook collaboration with the organization Giza for Humanity, international body that deals with archeology and megalithism, where he partnered with scientists, astronomers and archaeologists of different nations. In the same year he was invited to Paris to attend the conference, "Quelques Mystères Anciens" organized by Giza for Humanity. During the conference he presented the project "Rama Vive" and projected footage on the megaliths in Piedmont.
In 2009 he also held a seminar on Anthropology and Cosmology for the Amateur Astronomers Group known as "Hubble" in the town of Fiano (Turin), and entered into activities with the Municipal Library of Fiano, which becomes one of the venues of the Sole Nero School of Kemò-vad.

In 2010 he gave rise to the initiative "Cantiere Culturale di Dreamland" (now Ecovillage of Dreamland) within the National Park of La Mandria, Piedmont, to promote the rediscovery of Celtic culture and indigenous peoples as living presences on the planet, by means of conferences, stage and workshops in contact with nature.

at the middle school gym of Fiano (Turin)

That same year, he debuted the book "Il Cuore Antico", authored with Rosalba Nattero and published by Keltia Editrice at the International Book Fair of Turin; the book gathers two decades of research on the cultures of the indigenous peoples of Europe. The book gives way to the documentary "Il Cuore Antico, per non dimenticare" by Luca Colarelli in which Barbadoro participates as writer of the screenplay; the documentary is debuted in English as "The Ancient Heart" at the UN in New York.

In 2011 he and Rosalba Nattero founded the "Sole Nero School of Kemò-vad", to promote an ancient Druidic discipline through its components of meditation, history, culture, under mandate of the Druid community of Brocéliande; core courses and workshops are held at the Dreamland Venue for Kemò-vad, in the Park of La Mandria, at the Middle School Gym of Fiano (Turin), at the Garage of Art & Culture in Turin with demonstrations taking place in public parks and squares throughout the city.
That same year he presented his book "Danzare nel Vento, armonia e benessere della Kemò-vad" (Dance in the Wind, Harmony and Wellness of Kemò-vad) at the International Book Fair of Turin.

In 2012, he founded the "Sole Nero University of Native Europeans" within the context of the practice of Kemò-vad, which is a laboratory of cosmology and anthropology of the Celtic tradition.

Publishing activities

In addition to a strong commitment to literature, his work as a journalist expresses itself through activities aimed to spread the ancient Celtic traditions and mythologies through collaborations with newspapers and magazines and through radio and television interviews.

In 2011, he, along with Rosalba Nattero and Gino Steiner Strippoli, and aided by an international editorial team, founded the online magazine Shan Newspaper (, the official instrument used by the Ecospirituality Foundation to divulge scientific and out of the ordinary culture.

Giancarlo Barbadoro leaves this land on 6 August 2019

His works and his intellectual heritage are collected by Rosalba Nattero who, together with other researchers of the Ecospirituality Foundation, founded the “Giancarlo Barbadoro Study Center”.

Numerous works have been created in his memory at the Ecovillage of Dreamland: the Nemeton, a sanctuary dedicated to Giancarlo Barbadoro, where a large menhir stands out; the perforated wheel at the entrance to the Ecovillage, the Alchemical Door, the plaque at the entrance to the Stone Circle.

Triskel Editions have published some of his posthumous books: "Meditation and Ecospirituality", "Beyond the threshold", a collection with all his poems many of which are unpublished and "In search of different Intelligences" updated and expanded with his recent searches.

Many tributes have been dedicated to him, in all the areas in which he moved and in which he left his mark. From the Order of Journalists which dedicated a commemoration and a plaque to him, to the Animals & Environment Table which dedicated an event to him, to the concerts dedicated to him, to the celebrations at the Ecovillage of Dreamland.

The Ecospirituality Foundation Benin has opened a Virtual Museum dedicated to him, whose curator is Angel Yvon Hounkonnou.

Giancarlo Barbadoro has been defined as an artist, a poet, a warrior, a shaman. In his relationship with the exponents of the Druidic tradition he had been awarded the title of "Ancient", with the task of preserving and transmitting the ancient philosophy of meditation.

In his life he has always fought for the weakest, from indigenous peoples to animals, for which he had a great love. He was undoubtedly a visionary. A time traveler, coming from a future he dreamed of, a future of peace and brotherhood for all living beings, who left an indelible mark on all those who had the opportunity to know him or even just to meet him.
