Quote from the article:
“1. Background
Similarly to other countries around the world, Italyrepresents an historical rich country with respect of the number of UFO observations and the different UFO researches undertaken. As a result of a wave of UFO sightings in 1978 and some questions raised by members of the Italian Parliament, the then Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti designated the Air Force as the institutional Body to collect, verify and monitor the UFOs. As a result, the Minister of Defense ordered a specific office within Air Staff Headquarters to centralize all UFO data, and all armed forces were asked to forward their data to this office. Nowadays, this activity is carried out by the General Security Department of the Air Force. Anyone wishing to submit an event pertaining to a UFO sighting can do this by using the specific questionnaires available on the Air Force’ website. After the form has been submitted on line, it will be delivered to the nearest “Carabinieri” station (the national military police of Italy, policing both military and civilian populations). This will result in launching an investigation for trying to identify the nature of the phenomena observed, i.e. attempting to find an explanation in terms of human-made events and/or natural phenomena. If necessary, this research will also involve the participation of some other Italian competent bodies. Overall, such investigation will aim at ensuring that there is no potential defense of national security issue associated with the UFO sighting. If it is eventually not possible to identify the nature of the phenomena, the event will be classified as an observation of an Unidentified Flying Object. Obviously this will not mean that an alien vehicle was flying above Italy, but simply will indicate that it was not possible to identify the origin of the phenomena observed.”
