In 2014 Terra incognita supported the studies carried out by an inter-disciplinary team made of university researchers and authority in an unknown place, hidden in the heart of the Soratte mountain. Grotta Antica, discovered in 2004, has been sealed and closed for 7.000 years: only our cameras, capable speleologists and archaeologists have been able to explore it till now. Ceramic evidence, human remains and two columns risen in the middle are the only hints to solve the mystery: is it a prehistoric tomb or a sacred site, a place of worship of a proto Italian community at the beginning of civilization?
