In these days the Italian UFO community is under shock after the recent publication of a new, extraordinary book by Edizioni Nexus.
Its title is "Contattismi di Massa" ("Mass Contacts") and was written by Professor Stefano Breccia, a famous and esteemed engineer from Abruzzi. His impressive curriculum shows us a long academic career in L'Aquila's and many other Italian and foreign Universities. He is also a founding member of the Italian Ufological Centre (CUN).
The author recalls and investigates many cases in which contacts with aliens did not occur to single, isolated individuals but, on the contrary, involved entire groups of people, more or less organized in communities, who lived together the same experiences. Some of these groups decided to reveal what was happening, some others preferred to keep everything secret.
This completely new and intriguing scenery will open to researchers the possibility, for the first time in Ufology, to investigate on crossed sources of information, to trace the many witnesses involved, verifying their reciprocal links, and to study facts, times and places from many and different points of view at the same time.
The book re-opens and deepens, with new and never published details, the famous case of "UMMO". This was the name of a race of self-defining extraterrestrials who sent for decades an incredible amount of letters to famous scientists and researchers living in Spain, France, Italy etc. These letters were filled with extremely complicated notions denoting very advanced scientific knowledge. Many of the scientists who had received them later admitted they had been inspired by those letters, owing to that superior science many of their inventions and discoveries.
The book also shows a completely unknown corollary of the "UMMO case" involving central Italy and, more specifically, the town of Rome and the archaeological Etruscan ruins of Veio.
During the seventies in those places acted, completely undisturbed, many extraterrestrials calling themselves "Italic Ummites". They looked like humans and for this reason could perfectly hide and integrate in our society. These beings, who possessed a technology well far beyond ours, produced many phenomena for us indistinguishable from magic and used their abilities to direct and manipulate a group of young UFO enthusiasts.
But the real "bomb" contained in "Mass Contacts" blasts when we read the third chapter: The Story of "FRIENDSHIP".
In this chapter we assist to the fall of a secrecy that had enveloped for decades a case cited very sporadically and suspiciously only by few investigators (the best informed ones). They had some evidences suggesting that in Italy, from 1956 to 1978, something TREMENDOUS had happened, but all their efforts to discover the truth had failed. The fact was that the group involved in the case had decided to keep everything secret; many of them were famous and influent people and could not ruin their lives and careers saying they had met face to face with extraterrestrial people. They knew the world was not ready yet.
Now at last, Professor Stefano Breccia (a member of "Friendship" himself, as we can easily infer), providing many impressive documents and testimonies, disclosures the truth on the entire story to give homage and justice to the memory of his big friend, the late Dr. Bruno Sammaciccia, pivot figure in the "Friendship" group, and gives him the word publishing a long taped interview to his friend.
Professor Bruno Sammaciccia was a well known Psychologist and Theologian from Pescara. He wrote many volumes on religious subjects including the study of miracles, holy relics, the Order of San Francis of Assisi and the history of compared Religions. His works have been translated in many languages and are well represented in all main religious libraries all over the world. He received the UNESCO prize "Man of the Year" in 1982, was friend of many important people and high prelates and the same Pope Karol Woytila, at the time Cardinal of Cracow, wrote a friendly dedication on one of his books.
His public and irreprehensible image hid a fantastic and science fiction-like reality:
from 1956 to 1978 Bruno Sammaciccia and many other people had continuative and intense contacts with extraterrestrial entities coming from planets orbiting around many different stars, many light years distant from our Solar Sistem, forming part of a Galactic Federation.
Just like Enoch Wallace, the leading character of Clifford Simak's "Way Station", Bruno Sammaciccia found himself in the middle of an incredible passage of aliens on this planet Earth. They had many underground bases, the biggest one was under the Adriatic Sea and was long more than one hundred kilometers. Bruno Sammaciccia's duties ranged from buying and transporting goods to the underground bases, to organizing a selected group of terrestrials capable to understand the alien knowledge and to spread it more and more to humanity.
The whole operation had to remain secret. The total number of the lucky earthlings admitted to such a fantastic group is esteemed from Professor Breccia in no more than 200 people, including similar groups in Austria, Germany and Russia. They spontaneously called themselves "Friendship", "Freundshaft", "Amitiè" and, of course, "Amicizia", because the wonderful "human" warmness of the space visitors had suggested in everyone the same feeling.
Bruno Sammaciccia gave to his "Friends" the code-name of "W56" ("W" from the sign of victory and "56" from the year of the first contact). He describes them as human in the shape but very different in tallness, ranging from one meter to three meters and a half...in one occasion he and other people near Pescara saw from a distance some giants six meters tall!
The aliens "normally" tall showed to be perfectly fit in our society and had a knowledge of our world and our history much deeper than ours. They had technologies like teleportation or interstellar travel but enjoyed themselves driving our cars or piloting our planes. They loved our foods and they loved smoking too! They knew that exceeding in some habits can be dangerous and used to take regularly some antidotes. Anyway the different atmosphere and gravity of their re-created environment could completely decontaminate bodies from toxic substances; this healing effect was experimented also from Sammaciccia and his human friends who had access to underground bases.
The "W56" aliens said they wanted to help humans to survive because, especially during the last decades, human civilization had chosen very dangerous paths, blindly trusting in science and forgetting morals. They said that the other civilizations, in space and on earth, who had made the same errors had invariably perished. They could not interfere at a mass level with us because our culture would have been destroyed, but they could gently address with their teaching a little number of selected terrestrials to a better future, and their messages had to be spread in this way to more and more people, generation after generation.
Unfortunately the "W56" were fiercely struggled by a hostile race they called "our enemy brothers" and for this reason also our unaware human race was involved in some kind of "Star War". Sammaciccia re-named these enemies "CTR" (from "contraries" and one of the duties of the "Friendship" group consisted in helping W56's efforts to stop CTR's evil actions. The CTR are described like totally similar to us and this characteristic made them extremely dangerous, they were perfectly fit in our society, hyper technological and totally lacking in morals.
After almost thirty years of these fantastic interactions the history of "Friendship" came to a tragic end. The W56 were defeated, the CTR destroyed the enormous bases where also humans had gone many times and the Adriatic sea erupted with many water columns, causing death and fear among fishermen in 1978. Sammaciccia states that humans too were culpable for this horrible end, because they had not trusted each other and they had not supported enough their alien "Friends".
Anyway W 56 promised they would come back at the beginning of the new century and Bruno Sammaciccia ends his long interview to Stefano Breccia hoping to see them again.
Sadly the theologian died in 2003 not realizing his wishes, at least in this world.
Now we have his extremely touching words and we have the duty to study the enormous amount of verifiable and concrete facts contained in Stefano Breccia's volume.
Talking about "facts": at the end of this book we can see a very clear photo of a W56. The person is in full light and all his body and face characteristics are perfectly detailed. For the first time in Ufology the image of a so-called "alien" is so clear, so "Human" (how tall is he?) and with no trace of photographic effects to make it more "exotic". Now researchers and debunkers will obviously try to verify the photo confronting that face with all similar faces they'll be able to discover and, in case, they will probably open also the police archives! That face is too recognizable; what happened if somebody would identify that guy saying:" HEY, I know him, he is my cousin!(or my brother, friend, husband etc etc etc...)"? the whole story would fall, of course.
So, why Dr.Breccia exposed his name and his career to such a great risk? Perhaps because he is totally certain that the person portrayed in that photo was not from this Earth.
If the "Frienship" story is true it represents one of the most important cases in Ufology and an immense heritage for humanity.
