Recently, Roberto Di Giorgio, head of general security for the Italian Air force commented that at least 38 cases recorded by the Air Force have no explanation. He stressed ‘We cannot rule out the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence (in relation to these sightings). According to Italy's prime UFO research organisation, The National UFO Centre, the Italian Air Force has revealed to ufologists that it has around 400 separate detailed reports on UFO incidents dating back to 1979.
Is this a tactic by Italy to use open alien presence as a chance to regain Rome's position as a world superpower? Will the Latin world, by taking the lead on this issue, end up leaving the English speaking nations, that refuse to divulge what they know on the topic, behind in a new galactic reality.
1961-Pescara, Italy. Bruno Ghibaudi, a scientific newspaper journalist, took several photographs of strange flying devices on the beaches of Pescara along the Adriatic sea in April 1961. He also claims he had encountered extra-terrestrial beings. Here is a larger version of the picture. Note: This looks more like a flying locust than anything else. One of the strangest flying objects I have seen.
Around mid-day on April 27, 1961, Bruno Ghibaudi, a scientific journalist, was driving the highway paralleling the beach at Montesilvano (Pescara), felt a flat tire and pulled his car over and stopped. As he began changing the bad tire, and as he was working at that task, he noticed an unusual metallic-looking disc- shaped flying objectcoming in at a low level over the ocean. It passed overhead, slowed, made a sharp turn towards the north and flew away. (Case 16, Project Blue Book)
Marshal Di Francesco, of Carabinieri Command Group (at that time located in the central Nicola Fabrizi street) with whom I had good relations within the framework of my activities reporter, called me by phone to the office in Pescara on the same day that saw the article regarding the alleged sighting by Ghibaudi, and asked to me to go to his office.
He showed me the article and asked to me for an opinion on the veracity of the article and photographs published showing objects flying above the beach in Pescara. My answer was not a conclusive "NO", even though my gut told me that this was some badly done orchestrated BS. Anyway i expressed my doubts about the reliability of the sighting. Di Francesco, however, had already decided the news was false and could create issues to public order. Then the author was charged for generating panic on the population. The marshal told me that the "flying saucer" was nothing but a model that in those days was for sale in the toy area of Standa in Corso Vittorio Emanuele. (NOTE: Standa is an italian Supermatrket Chain)
The marshal had already compared the object in the picture with the model and had no doubts it was the same.
I went immediately to Standa in order to make my own comparisons and actually the toy was exactly the same as the photo published.
Then i wrote an article regarding the hoax, but strangely enough it was NEVER published. Days after the Marshall called me back and told me that "we never talked about the case". I've decided to come clean because i've learned that a book claiming the autenticity of the photo is to be published....
