Some geologists looking for underground water have discovered an Iron structure 20m x 4m, about 3m deep beneath the ground, two km from Roccatederighi. The source is in Italian :
www.terninrete.it...

I tried google translation and the only thing I understood about the object is that its of a strange shape resembling a platform(?) and is electrically conductive. And people are trying to keep it a secret. Perhaps someone on this forum has more information?

Here is the google translation:


Source: The Tyrrhenian one
ROCCATEDERIGHI. They tried the water, have uncovered “one mysterious mass”, three meters underground, on one hill to two km from Roccatederighi. An extraordinary ritrovamento, about which in country which is spoken sottovoce and on comes made multiple hypotheses, some indeed evocative. Hour on the vicissitude they inquire the police officers of the local station, is an informative one to the Power of attorney of the Republic of Grosseto and from yesterday evening it has been officially invested of the case also the first citizen of the Common one of Roccastrada, Leonardo Marras.

The antefatto one. All it begins during the winter. The owner of a country house, a from Milan one, decides of incaricare of the geologi in order to find, in its property, one water source. He wants to avoid the constant and expensive resource to the tankers in order to provision. We are on a clay hill limekilns, a place from which the Fen is controlled, extraordinary if it were not for that problem: the water, exactly. The geologist makes its must: deepened survey of the ground, geoelettrica surveying with vanguard instrumentations. No source trace, difficult also to suggest a place where to carry out the usual carotaggi. It is risked to work much, to spend equally and not to find one water drop.

Surprise. From Milan tourist makes lever on the relationships of the good environs and asks for being able “to sconfinare”, with its surveyings, in the land of a neighbor. And here something of unthinkable emerges (if one may use the expression). Macché, of the water not is trace. Underground, between the three and five meters of depth, is characterized instead a ferrous mass (would be long beyond twenty meters, wide four). In section it has a strange shape. It remembers a large one, one half platform, perhaps armoring. “Never seen null of similar - it confesses endured the geologist to the commitente - it is a material to elevated conductivity electrical worker, the regular shape. You say what you must make to me”.


A mystery. The searches are stopped. Better one pause than reflection. Meantime the two owners consult, show the papers to an other geologist, ask the delivery for Hush and to the end they choose to postpone. But the curiosity, is known, been a motor difficult to extinguish. Of it they speak, with the colleagues and the University, the geologi been involved. Of it it speaks, in country, the owner of the land. The news is of that they ignite the fantasy, than risvegliano old history, never definitively archiviate. Perhaps the old ones can offer one explanation. Not, unfortunately the old ones do not have idea of what are buried under that hill.

Reactions. They are the geologi, in this vicissitude, to having a role centers them. They not only possess the papers where this anomaly is picked, but also the instruments in order to deepen, for giving clearer answers, without to dig, without to make too much hard work. But to the geologi it has been asked not to speak, to put one to us stone over. When, to the telephone, we contact the discoverer of the mysterious mass before diminishes, then us diffida citing places and names. At last one appeals to the privacy and it threatens the resource to the ways lawyers. It says that one will address a lawyer: “the publicity does not interest me on newspapers. They are disposed to only speak with the police officers”. And therefore it will make.

The confirmations. According to geologist been involved it knows the territory, but it has seen only some papers. it is cautious, nevertheless confirmation, without a shadow of doubt, than “underground, in that property, there is something that would not have is to us”. Confirmation also the nature of the material: a metal, a conductor. It excludes, for the dimensions, than it can be dealt of carroarmato. It suggests, saggiamente, not to make hypothesis hazardous and to invest of the discovery the competent authorities. The first nose-dive, modernized yesterday evening, ends here.

wow i'm never using google to translate,
it's like an immigrant speaking terrible english. i haven't heard of this, but it does sound very interesting, hopefully someone who speaks italian can translate it to make some grammatical sense. excellent find!

I thought that mabey it would have been remenants of an ancient roman aqua-duct system, but I'm sure the romans would have used stone, and not iron. Iron, coming into contact with water would surely rust.

I've tried some additional searches for more info, and came up with nada.

Pretty nifty find! I wonder when the archeologists found this structure, and what is the 'age' of it.

Too bad the Italians are tight-lipped about this.

Probably a meteor and a good find to boot. It's been there a long time to be so shallow.

Romans used lead in their plumbing (the origin of the word) and concrete for their Aquaducts. Just thought I'd chime in

well if they think it resembles a platform like structure then i dont think it would be a meteor, although a meteor was the first thing i thought of too(and i still do, kinda)

but if it is manmade then i wonder what it could be? especially being iron and all, although did it say that it is all iron or just partially?

In addition to this they discovered a big electromagnetic field 'pulsing' from the object, someone speaks about 7,5 microtesla.

Anyway we must wait until someone finally decides to dig....but a lot of people here is so stupid that you can't trust for sure they'll dig.

It's like a physical phenomenon: the more you move from north of italy to the south, the more supidity increases.

Wow I cant believe I just heard about this.

This kinda reminds me of the 2001 space odysse movie.

What if this is the evidence proving ancient inteligent civ.

cool.

Sometimes i wish i was a billionaire, so that i could get on a jet with some high-powered machinery, tranquilize the owners of the land, dig sucha thing up, document it in depoth, leave it lying there, broadcast it to the world, and then have people try and explain it or cover it up once it was all said and done.

Would solve so many of the worlds Archaeological fubars if that was done. Quick, dirty, destroys any accessory artefacts, but BLOODY HELL is it time we forced somethign into the light for a change.

I tried other translators and didn't get a much better overview. The only common thread is that it is a "ferrous mass", and no one knows what it is - or what should be there (i.e. there don't appear to be any records indicating that something was ever buried there).

Certainly fascinating. I hope something more comes of this.

I'm from Italy, no news for the moment. Maybe they'll never dig a hole. Mistery it's better, to sell some coca-cola at the local bar.

Cool, how did you find this info ??

Normally I wouldn't have given this news any importance. Iron buried in earth...well there's plenty of it, in the form of Iron ore. But as soon as they mention geologists, it caught my attention. Geologists surely do know what an ore is. So there must be something unusual about it.

From an italian newsgroup.

Update: tesla varies from little to over 30 near or on the object. The values are variable.

You have to understand this is a little like mexico... there's SOME type of bureaucracy... (heavy tons of...) police, judges, speculators, environmental agencies (particuarly strong on those communists parts of italy - yes, here's yet communists parties). Usually to make some miles of highway on those places takes 15-20 years....

So i think was better if they have dig immediately without any authorisation. Now maybe they'll never dig.

Recapitulation.

In searching of water (on a hill?) they found this metallic mass buried 4 meters under the ground on the top of the hill. So they said: uh-oh! what's this?

Here's a picture of the findings:

www.cunlazio.net...

here's the zone:

maps.live.com...~11.081005&style=a&lvl=17&tilt=-90&dir=0&alt=-1000&encType=1

And they called journalists, geologists and ufologists. These peolple taken measures and found that the object it's 20 meters long, 4 meters high but they given no data about how large it is

The terrain owner owns it from 1936 and he says that no digs have been made since then
. An hypothesis is that the object maybe a manufact related to world war 2 or an ancient water deposit from the roman empire era. The strangeness of the electromagnetic emissions remains.

Let's see what happens.

Am i the only one who thinks that shape is rediculously reminiscent of a UFO? Anyone?

Eh, maybe its just some old fascist bunker from WWII then V_v

If you were a billionare wouldn't it be better to just buy the land?

On topic, who owns this piece of land?

All the money in the world wouldn't help you if the government decided to cordon off the land in the name of "national security".

I never did that before, but I found some clues here:
www.fhwa.dot.gov...

Its a plot of conductivity of ground. The color chart below shows the conductivity (or resistivity). The horizontal axis is distance and vertical axis is depth. So blue-green areas mean ground water or something conductive.

So the question is, is this just an artifact on the graph paper or is there something real buried there?

Looks kinda like a tank to me. Anything in a tank that would still be giving off those type of readings after, say, 50-100 years?

Very interesting nonetheless.
