Can you answer my question this time?
Do you know of any reports of "missing time" or strange incidents from OTHER RESIDENTS in the area aside from those you've mentioned?
This would be helpful to know don't you think?
Hi, StevesResearch: i don't know what ImShrike will answer, but as far as i know no accounts of missing time have been reported during the events,
but 52 witnesses of UFO sightings, including one from an officer of
Carabinieri and two from Zanfretta's colleagues: even the major of the town spotted an UFO. But as far as i know, no missing time nor CE3 have been
reported by others. Yours was a good question.
After exchanging some emails with the journalist who followed the case, i think i have to point something out.
Basically, the story of Zanfretta has to be split into two parts:
chronicle (years etween 1978 and 1980) and follow up.
The most important difference between the two is that during the years 1978,1979 and 1980, the man has been continuously monitored, he was under
investigation and during his three major CE his colleagues confirmed to have spotted UFOs, basically the events related to those years are
Then, there's the follow up, including the account of the sphere: this second part, is mostly (if not all) based on Zanfretta's claims: it's very
important to discern the two.
There are, though, mysterious facets related to the story of the sphere: for example, people trying to follow him during some of his trips to the
sphere, stated that there was no way to follow him, due to the visibility and the danger: there was some extremely narrow walk on some precipice: he
was able to get there even under extreme conditions (darkness, snow, rain etc) and no one has ever been able to follow him.
Another facet is the one of the accounts:
many details came out only under regressive hypnosis.
For example, the story of the flashlight: right after the first event, he reported to have grabbed it and then escaped, but under regressive hypnosis
he told a completely different story: he said to have been brought to some "very hot place".
Now the difference between the two versions could be explained as some form of reaction towards the events (many times it happens that we remove some
very negative experience from our memory), but this is just a guess of mine.
There are also the two mysterious people from USA who tried to buy the sphere, offering a lot of money and claiming that "there are tweo more spheres
in the world". These two people didn't get in touch with Zanfretta only, but also with the journalist Rino Di Stefano: actually they met him in
Tucson, AZ, on 1991 and not only: they have been in italy and spent two weeks with both the Di Stefano and Zanfretta: they were ready to pay MUCH
money, but what's strange is that they behaved as if they knew
what actually was the device that we call sphere.
Also, while it's true that there are no proofs of the existence of the sphere, is also true that not a single photo came out in some normal way: the
ones taken inside the cave where the sphere was stored came out "burnt" due to excess of light, while the ones taken outside, despite showing
clearly the area, also have some strange visual noises that couldn't be explained so far: i got one of the pics today, and in all honesty i have no
explanation for that type of noise, especially since it was taken with some analog camera so you can rule out all the CCD related issues. I will send
a copy of the picture to both Jeff Ritzmann and Bruce Maccabee, hoping that they aren't too busy right now: if it's some known type of issue, i'm
sure they will recognize it instantly.
