Interview with Michelangelo Naddeo

Have you ever got any support for your work?

I have devoted some years of my life to the research I made because I enjoyed doing it and I thought it could be a valuable contribution to the historical research of the origins of the European civilization. I was not expecting any support. I did receive support from many Hungarians, who sent me books, contributed to my work with their knowledge of the Hungarian culture, invoked the protection of Isten on me. I have received no support at all from any Institution of any kind. The Hungarian institutions are not interested in the past of the Hungarians: shamefully they have not even sponsored the Unicoding of the Rovás, a work that is now in the hands of a foreigner, who does not even speak Hungarian, and who is quoting false statements of Gimbutas in order to support his personal opinions. A Country that does not praise its past is a Country that has no future.

What can make us start to quest for our European roots?

Some Hungarians appear to be unaware of the fact that Communism is no longer ruling the Country. Some others believe that they are not Europeans. The truth is that they are “fossil Europeans”, the most ancient people of Europe.

Most of all I am sympathetic with the younger Hungarian generations, who have not been influenced by the ideologies of the last century: they shall bring Hungary back to an important role in Europe.

Errata corrige: The magazine that defined of poor quality the research performed by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences was not “National Geographic” (as mistakenly stated by me during the interview), but the scientific magazine “Nature”… which is even more authoritative and influential.

Michelangelo Naddeo was born in 1943, in Ceccano, not far from Rome. He studied in a “Liceo Classico” high school, where he learned Philosophy, History, Ancient Languages, Arts. He graduated at the University of Rome, as an Electronic Engineer.

From 1965 to 1975 he was an officer in the Italian Air Force Air Defence. In 2000 he retired and since then he has been researching.

He speaks eight languages, including Latin and Ancient Greek.

His main books: “Germanic Runes… a Finnish Alphabet (2006), “Honfoglalás… the Magyars are back home” (2007), “The Ugaritic Abjad… a Rovás alphabet” (2007), “The Ancient Magyar Art and Religion” (being printed).

  1. Here follows the complete text of the “Nature” article:

    Hungary’s science academy slammed as ‘obsolete’

    Government and researchers complain of old-fashioned and discriminatory policies.

    Hungary’s national science academy has been criticized for discriminating against scientists living and working abroad. The academy’s attitude is frustrating not just researchers but also the Hungarian government, which is trying to reform the country’s research system and attract more high-profile scientists.

    The Hungarian Academy of Sciences is accused of putting scientists who publish abroad at a disadvantage.

    The Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS) in Budapest is Hungary’s largest and best-funded public research institution. It awards a title, ‘Doctor of Science’, that is required by professors or lecturers at most Hungarian universities and academic research institutes. Applicants need a certain number of scientific publications, but Nature has learned that the academy’s medical division treats non-Hungarian publications as worth only half as much as those published in Hungary.

    “The rules basically exclude foreign researchers from competition with medical scientists in Hungary,” says Gábor Vajta, a Hungarian embryologist and cloning expert working at the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences in Tjele. He says he has no intention of returning to his native country. “But if I did, I would practically have to start from the very beginning.”

    “It’s outrageous,” agrees Csaba Szabó, a pharmacologist who, after ten years in the United States and United Kingdom, returned to Hungary last year.

    The policy is also against the spirit of Hungary’s membership of the European Union, says Georges Bingen, who oversees mobility programmes at the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research. “This looks like a severe obstacle to mobility,” he says. Last year, the commission set up a mobility charter for researchers in Europe, calling for countries to encourage researchers to work abroad. But the commission has no authority to force a scientific institution to do so.

    The Hungarian government, which wants to strengthen Hungarian science, is also concerned. “Some of the academy’s rules clearly disadvantage scientists who live and publish abroad,” says János Kóka, the Hungarian minister responsible for science.

    Kóka says the practice is symptomatic of the academy’s old-fashioned attitude. “Its election committees still consist of academicians who were socialized in a totalitarian regime,” he says. “They’re used to spending tens of millions of euros without producing any results worth mentioning.” The HAS spends a large portion of its budget on “inherited merits and obsolete institutions”, Kóka says.

    They’re used to spending tens of millions of euros without producing any results worth mentioning.

    Norbert Kroó, the HAS’s vice-president in charge of foreign relations, counters that the academy has been reformed since the fall of Hungary’s communist government in 1990. Staffing has been cut by 40%, he says, and about 170 new research groups have been selected by peer review. The HAS promotes researchers’ mobility across borders and between academia and industry, he adds. He says he wasn’t aware of the discriminatory rules, and that he’ll ask the medical section to take action: “If these rules really are applied they need to be changed.”

    “There are two major lobbies within the academy,” says Gábor Támas, a neuroscientist at the University of Szeged. “One faction wants changes, the other does not.”

    Támas says reform is needed urgently. But he warns against dismissing the academy’s performance. Some HAS institutes, such as the Institute of Experimental Medicine in Budapest and the Biological Research Center in Szeged, produce some of the best science in the country, he says.

    Critics and supporters of the academy should stop blaming each other, says Ernõ Duda, president of both Solvo Biotechnology in Budapest and the Hungarian Biotech-nology Association. He agrees that the academy needs to change, but also that Hungary’s overly hierarchical universities must open up. “Until a few years ago I would have said that financing was the biggest obstacle to biotechnology in Hungary,” he says. “Now the biggest problem is our obsolete and old-fashioned academic research system.”

  1. I have one very strong supporting fact about the common Finno Ugric presence in Ukraine in prehistory
    The capital city of Ukraine is called Kiev or Kijv or Kiiv .
    In Finnish stone or rock is kivi.
    In Hungarian stone or rock is kő but when declined it becomes kövek követ kövem köved köve, so one
    can see that originally there was a v after the ő in kő.
    So the Finnish kivi and the Hungarian kő is the same word altered after two or three thousand years of separation.
    Kiev keeps all the three phonemes K I V or KÖV.

    I have record and a book called Új guzsalyam mellett Besides my new spinning rod.
    A csángó magyar collection of folk songs which is amusingly and wrongly transcribed.
    One song goes
    Hosszú a hajatok rövid az eszetek
    Your hair is long but your brain is short.
    That is what the toothless old woman selypít mumbles wheezes slurs mispronounces as she
    sings the song.
    It is clear to my ear but the transcriber amusingly and amazingly
    Hosszú a hajatok rövid az eszetek
    Hosszú a hajatok rivigy az eszetek!

    So to his ear RÖVID = RIVIGY.

    Exactly like KIEV = KÖVE = KIVI

    So the name of the Ukrainian capital city is a Finno Ugric word and was therefor a Finno Ugric city
    two or three or four thousand years ago.
    KIEV Kő vár Kivi castle or burg Stone or Rock city or castle or burg.

    A pair of Ukrainian historian brothers whom I knew in Fredericton NB in the 196Os
    Pidhainy asserted that the further and deeper you dig in Ukraine you find nothing but Finno Ugric lelet fouilles objects remains finds.

    So I hope that these two facts or suggestions that the capital city of Ukraine Kiev was Finno Ugric
    and has Finnish and Hungarian sense meaning Stone or Rock Castle or City and that there are many archaeological signs of Finno Ugric presence rather past in Ukraine will help cement your contention
    that Transcarpathia was at one time not only Finnish but Hungarian.

    Of course the study of aquanyms or potamonomoi or fluvinyms is vital in establishing the original
    inhabitants and their language in EU or indeed Eurasia.

    Dneister Dnepr Duna Danube Donau Dunaj Don are obvious examples although I don’t know what their
    identical names mean.
    Or Rhein Rajna Rhone.
    Or Tamesis Thames Tiber perhaps Tisza.

    But the Greek word Potamos is suspiciously akin to Po the great river of the Villanovan Etruscan Longobard Lumbard plain.
    P linguistically is akin to F of course.
    Folyó river folyik pours flows. Here the English and the Hungarian are identical PO FO meaning
    Flowing water or Folyó Folyam or indeed the Italian Fiume.
    So the name of the greatest river of Italy is a good Hungarian word Pó folyó flowing water.
    Must be at least five thousand years old.

    So the plot thickens. The Capital City of Ukraine is Hungarian Kiev Kővár Stone Castle or City and the greatest river of Italy is Hungarian Po folyó folyam folyik flowing river water is what Po means.
    Potamos indeed ποταμος.

    Thank You, Mr. Jablánczy for that comment! You are indeed correct about the origins of the name of the Ukrainian capital Kiev. In fact, You may have found the following articles on the net. Typically, they are in Hungarian. So many articles should be translated to English about these and related subjects. It is vital for the understanding of human history, culture and heritage, and would put a big dent in all the lies, disinformation and misunderstandings surrounding this issue. Maybe one day I’ll find the time to translate some of this material. Until then, maybe someone else would be interested?

    “About the Magyar Metallurgy in Kiev” by Fettich Nándor (in Hungarian)

    “Ancient Magyar Sword Smithing” by Padányi Viktor (in Hungarian)

    Another very much related question regards the name of a northern Sicilian coastal town: Cefalù. Now, Sicily was allegedly populated from the East and its original colonisers were the Siculi, the Sicani and the Elymi. The Siculi and Sicani were (are?!) kin peoples—maybe the Elymi were as well, but I’m not sure. The Siculi came from the Carpathian Basin and their Hungarian brethren are still there, the ancient Magyar Székely people. The most prominent landmark of Cefalù is a huge rock formation that hangs above the entire town, around which the town is built.

    Cefalù, Sicily

    To present-day Hungarians the name Cefalù does not have to be translated or explained, it is simply KŐ FALU: “rock village”. There is even a town in present-day Transylvania (historical Hungary) called Kőfalu.

    Let me quote three articles to support all this:

    “One can identify Székely (Sicul) presence for several reasons among the ancient inhabitants of Sicily. The center of the Sicilian town of Kefalu means in Magyar „Stone town” (Kő falu), which is accurate, considering the huge mountain of rock in the center of this town. The names Sicily and Sicul and also the name Sican go back to Székely (Sicul) origins. These were two of the three ancient inhabitants. Mr. Tiffany’s article about the underground churches of Malta also points to Sicilian inhabitants.

    Here we are only one step away from Egypt. The Magyar pyramids serve as solution to the secrets of Egyptian pyramids, which is only possible through the knowledge of the Magyar culture.”


    Some years ago, in Agrigento, a 500,000 year-old human skull was found. At the time of this find, the skull of the „Mandrascava girl” was the oldest, intact human skull. Further research showed that the people of Sicily lived under very organized circumstances around 10,000 B.C. On the hills of Pellegrino, near Palermo, in the cave of Addura, this culture is estimated to be 8,000 years old and scientists surmise that it evolved into a culture similar to that of Central and Western Europe. In spite of this, they still did not establish whence this culture came to Sicily, from the North or the West.[33]

    The Siculs and Sicans, who were the name-givers of this island, began the foundation of this society in 5,000 B.C., according to presently popular opinions. By 2,000 B.C., three languages had evolved here: in the West the Sican language, Elymian in the North West and the Sicul language in the East. The scant remnants of these cultures can still be found. For example the large stone memorial which was dedicated to Diana in Kefalu was probably erected by the Sicans.

    This land was later colonized around 900 B.C. by the Phoenicians who also founded Carthage in North Africa, and later the cities of Mozia, Solunto and Palermo in Sicily.

    “The founding of Sicily is attributed to the Sicul people who are related to the Siculs of the Carpathian. They originated in the Göcsej region of Hungary. In this way we have to count among the Sicul fairy castles not only the ones in Erdély (Transylvania) but in Sicily as well. According to legend Morgan was able to fly. At the time this legend was born, people did not know that, in the city of Addura in Sicily, there is a cave drawing depicting human figures in an apparently gravity free environment, flying without wings. This art came to light during World War II., when an explosion opened up the cave and brought this drawing into the open.”

    “A recounting of the fate of Locri encapsulates a prototypical account of the great cities that emerged from the Greek colonization of South Italy and Sicily. The cities began to flourish during the Seventh Century B. C. E. By best estimates, the Greek colonizers established Locri at the site of the current excavations during the decade of 670 B. C. E. When they began their settlement, they arranged the terms of their inhabitation with the indigenous people, the Siculs. [Hence, the Siculs were already there when the Greeks arrived. /Kartavirya] The Siculs moved to the hinterland, and their availability as laborers contributed to the rapid growth of Locri, which then established a number of sub-colonies on both coasts of the Calabrian peninsula. Writers who left the bits of record of the city acclaim the colony as a well-ordered city, crediting its leaders with having produced one of the first written sets of municipal laws. Like other cities in Magna Grecia, as the colonies of Sicily and Italy were known, Locri constantly battled with other colonies; particularly with Reggio and Crotone. The leaders of the city effected an alliance with Dionysius, the tyrant of Siracusa, during the early part of the IVth century, B. C. E. That alliance proved to be a major mistake when Dionysius’ son assumed power. The people of Locri eventually overthrew Dionysius the younger, but the decline of the city could not be abated. In the two following centuries, the city was constantly involved in the wars during which the Romans took control of Southern Italy and Sicily. By the end of the IIIrd century, B. C. E., Locri was a Roman city.”

    is it possible if we are to believe the story that the descendants of cux parties with Rama founder of Hinduism are back in the form of indo European at their point of origin?
