When we think of UFO crashes, the first thing that comes to mind is the famous Roswell incident of 1947, when a mysterious object crashed on a ranch in New Mexico, sparking decades of speculation and controversy.
But what if Roswell was not the first, nor the only, UFO crash on Earth? What if there was an earlier and more obscure case that involved a fascist dictator, a secret department, and a possible cover-up by the US military?
That is the intriguing story of the 1933 UFO crash in Italy, which has recently resurfaced thanks to new allegations and evidence from researchers and former intelligence officials.
According to these sources, a bell-shaped flying saucer crashed near Magenta, a town west of Milan, on June 13, 1933.
The craft was reportedly recovered by the Italian authorities and taken to a nearby airfield, where it was examined by a team of experts led by none other than Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of radio.
Little is known about the first “UFO” case in Italy: the fascist regime immediately secreted the story. It was Roberto Pinotti, founder and secretary of the National UFO Center, who tried to dissolve the mist of mystery that surrounds the case.
At the “Ufology” conference, which was held near Lake Maggiore, in Arona, he explained that “the remains of the UFO, which in the drawings is described as a cylindrical aircraft, with a bottleneck at the end, with portholes on the side, from which white and red lights came out, were taken to the Siai-Marchetti warehouses in Vergiate, where they remained for 12 years.
The bodies of the pilots, preserved in formalin, were studied for a long time. It is known that they were 1.80 tall, had light hair, and oriental-looking blue eyes.
It is therefore understandable why Mussolini thought they were German pilots, despite the authoritative contrary opinion of Marconi himself.
The hypothesis advanced by Pinotti could also redefine the history of the pre-war period: “The Duce believed, perhaps, that it would be appropriate to ally himself with a military power like that of Nazi Germany, capable of producing an aircraft never seen before, rather than having her as an enemy.”
The craft itself was said to be made of an unknown metal that was resistant to heat and corrosion, and had a complex propulsion system and electromagnetic fields.
The Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, who was fascinated by the phenomenon, ordered the creation of a secret department called “Gabinetto RS/33” (or RS/33 Cabinet) to study the saucer and its technology. The department was headed by Marconi and included scientists, engineers, and military officers. Their goal was to reverse-engineer the alien craft and use it for military purposes.
However, their plans were thwarted by the end of World War II, when Italy was invaded by the Allied forces. According to some accounts, the American troops seized the saucer and its remains and shipped them to the US, where they became part of a covert program that collected and studied multiple “non-human” flying saucers.
This program was allegedly overseen by the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), a highly secretive intelligence agency that operates spy satellites.
The existence of this program was recently revealed by David Grusch, a former NRO officer who claims to have firsthand knowledge of it. Grusch says that he has seen documents and photos that prove that the US government has obtained several alien crafts over the years, including the one from Italy in 1933. He also says that he has spoken to other former intelligence officers who were part of the program and confirmed his story.
The 1933 UFO crash in Italy may be one of the oldest and most forgotten cases in UAP history, but it may also be one of the most important ones. It may hold clues to the origin and purpose of these mysterious visitors, as well as their impact on human history and technology.
