In October 1954, the Italian team Fiorentina was interrupted by mysterious visitors hovering over the stadium. UFOs from Fiorentina have been part of the wave of mass observation across Europe – and still a secret.
As fascinating as it may sound, it is true Although it may sound as crazy as it is, it is true. This event took place in Florence, Italy, on October 27, 1954. On this occasion, one of the greatest UFO sightings in history took place: around 10,000 people who were at the Artemio Franchi Stadium watching the match between Fiorentina and Pistoiese were witnesses of unidentified flying objects in the sky above the stadium.
The match had to be suspended “because the audience saw something odd in the sky” according to the official report of the referees’ match. According to one of the players present in this match, defender Ardico Magnini, who was legendary in the club, played in Italy at the World Cup in 1954.
“I remember everything from A to Z,” he says. “It was something that looked like an egg that was moving slowly, very slowly. Everyone looked up to the sky, from which a glitter came to the ground, a silver glitter. We were surprised and shocked at the same time; we have never seen anything like that before. “This was noticed by many other witnesses who were in the match.
Some even claimed that it was not one but several objects. In the days that followed, another UFO sighting was recorded in the city and in the stadium.
As you may have noticed in the testimony, the Italian defender speaks of strange material falling from the sky, which was supposedly sticky and shiny. This unknown fabric did not fall on the yard, but it covered a good part of Florence before it completely evaporated.
Those who come in contact with this material describe it as a material similar to cotton but also as something incomprehensible because it evaporates immediately after any contact.
Explanations, isolated but scientific, came about this phenomenon many years later: according to scientists, it could be a large network of cobwebs that appeared in the sky like a globe illuminated by the glowing Sun, because that’s the way spiders migrate.
Moreover, this happened in October, which coincided with the spider migration period. But the material found at the same time as the UFO was analyzed in the laboratory and the elements found do not match those that are part of the web.
