UFOs Over Italy


On the surface many reported eye witness accounts of UFOs seem to be isolated to the United States but there are as many reported sightings worldwide. Thanks to Philip Mantle of Flying Disk press over the next few issues we will feature excerpts from the latest releases in their UFO’s Over… series. The first case is from Italy and happened a mere fifty days following the infamous Kenneth Arnold sighting of nine boomerang shaped craft near Mt Rainier, Washington and was recounted by a distinguished Milanese painter and writer.

THE RAVEO (VILA SANTINA) CE3 CASE

Originally published in Italian UFO magazine Clypeus (so-called due to the similarity of UFOs to the bronze shields used by Roman solderis) the following translation was undertaken by Flying Saucer Review editor Gordon Creighton and first appeared in 1966. It has recently been prominently featured in the book UFOs Over Italy by Roberto Pinotti.

The author of this account (now deceased) was a well-known Italian painter and writer who lived in Milan. His science fiction book “C’era una volta un Pianeta…” (Once Upon A Time There Was A Planet…) and its sequel “Quando ero Aborigeno” (When I Was An Aboriginal) were published by Mondadori in Milan. The subject of both was the exodus to Earth of advanced human-like inhabitants from a fifth planet from the Sun (between Mars and Jupiter) just before its explosion due to an atomic war and their mating, before their extinction, with Neanderthal hominids producing a new hybrid species: Homo Sapiens. Readers will have to form their own opinions as to whether the following account by Professor Luigi Rapuzzi (aka L.R. Johannis) is the report of a real experience destined to inspire his science fiction books as he later said and to anticipate the “Ancient Astronauts” theory.
