UFO Contact in Italy

Francavilla (Pescara): Alien Contact in 1957?

     My book ‘UFO Contacts in Italy – Volume One’ will be published by FLYING DISK PRESS in the UK on February 1st, 2018. Much of the information in this book is being published in English for the very first time.

The book contains a whole array of UFO/alien contact cases from Italy but surely one of the most unusual incidents is this one from 1957. It is the only case that I am aware of that allegedly has photographs of the inside of the UFO.

What was destined to be called “the Friendship case” started near

Pescara between 1956 and 1957. A group of local residents seems to have been involved in periodic regular contacts with humanlike extra-terrestrial “friends” willing to help mankind. These beings would have built underground bases on Earth and in Italy the most important one would have been in the central zone of the peninsula along the Adriatic coast not far from Pescara. Consul Alberto Perego was well aware of all this since the beginning.

In October 1957 a flying saucer was rendered visible and landed in Francavillia, Italy on the Adriatic Coast. Two men were allowed to enter the UFO and take photographs. The diameter of the UFO was 24 meters, that of the control cabin was 10 meters. Eight of these photographs were published in 1958 in the book ‘Sono Extraterrestri’ by the Italian consul Alberto Perego, who was one of the prominent participants in this case. These rare and extraordinary photographs, as well as two photographs of the alleged extraterrestrial pilot were never published outside of Italy. They have been published here for the first time.

  1. LMAO! Amazing how the designers on that UFO's planet decorated their spaceship in the exact same design style as our 1940's science fiction ships! Are we sure those photos didn't come from a Buck Rogers movie!? I mean COME ON!

    To say the universe has no intelligent life other than our own is like saying we know about every single deep sea creature on earth.

  3. I'll start believing in aliens when they start bringing along their grandmums and their kids.

  4. What a load of tom tit. there must be a more truthful way to sell a book. PS I believe in ET there is to many witnesses reporting on the subject for it to be bull.
