Italian UFO Crash (1933)

The 1933 Magenta Italian UFO incident, also referred to as the “Fascist UFO Files,” holds a significant place in the annals of UFO history. According to the account, in 1933 in Lombardy, Northern Italy, during the rule of the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, an unidentified flying object reportedly crashed. This incident is unique in the chronicles of UFO sightings and alleged crashes, not only due to its early occurrence but also because of the clandestine research group it supposedly prompted.

Magenta is a town located in the Metropolitan City of Milan, in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy. It’s situated to the west of Milan.

The incident reportedly started when an unusual artifact crashed in the Lombardy region. Eyewitnesses described a strange, non-terrestrial craft adorned with bizarre symbols. Upon hearing the news, Mussolini, intrigued and potentially seeing the strategic advantage, is said to have ordered the Italian military to retrieve the object. Following this, the information around the incident was allegedly kept tightly under wraps due to the secretive nature of Mussolini’s Fascist regime.

Two entities were recovered, each measuring around 7 feet tall, characterized by blonde hair and prominent foreheads. Originally, many, Mussolini included, were skeptical about the extraterrestrial nature of the craft, suspecting German origins. This was due to the entities’ physical resemblance to Germans, notable for their blue eyes and blonde hair. The Beings were described as male, exceptionally tall, with long blonde hair, vast foreheads, and strikingly blue eyes with an Asiatic touch. They had small noses, mouths, and chins with thin lips and a very fair skin complexion. They lacked facial hair. While their hands were slender and human-esque, their toes were tiny, and their feet were flat. Their stark white skin lacked keratin granules, essential for natural skin moisturization, UV protection, and water retention. A significant discovery was the predominance of their lymphatic systems, which seemed to replace the blood system, offering immense protection against diseases. They weren’t human, at least not by our understanding. This narrative is primarily based on two accounts from Wright-Patterson regarding these alleged Beings.

In response to the crash, Mussolini supposedly established a secretive group known as Cabinet RS/33, charged with the investigation of this extraordinary artifact. According to the accounts, this group comprised selected scientists and military experts who examined the recovered artifact and tried to unravel its mysteries.

The 1933 incident predates the commonly acknowledged start of the “modern” UFO era, which began post-WWII with incidents like the 1947 Roswell crash. Second, the alleged establishment of Cabinet RS/33 would mean that Fascist Italy had a dedicated group of scientists working on UFO-related research, a rare scenario for that time period.

The main source of this information is the Italian researcher Roberto Pinotti, who has been vocal about the 1933 Italian UFO incident since the late 20th century. In his book, “UFO: Top Secret”, he provides an in-depth account of the incident and talks extensively about the supposed efforts of Cabinet RS/33. According to Pinotti, the group was unable to unlock the mysteries of the technology but ascertained its non-human origin based on the unknown materials and the strange symbols on the craft.

According to Pinotti, after the fascist regime of Mussolini fell, the new Italian government had no idea how to handle the UFO files and the craft. Therefore, the materials were supposedly transferred to the U.S. under the recently instituted Operation Paperclip, a program conducted by the United States to recruit German scientists from Nazi Germany to the U.S. after World War II.

In addition, there are claims that the Vatican, which has its independent city-state within the city of Rome, Italy, could have potentially received some information about this incident. These narratives often hinge on the notion that the Catholic Church has a significant interest in any potential extraterrestrial life, given the theological implications.

The relationship between Benito Mussolini, the leader of Fascist Italy, and Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Germany, played a crucial role in the course of world events leading up to and during World War II.

Mussolini came to power in Italy in 1922, more than a decade before Hitler’s rise in Germany. Initially, Mussolini did not have a high opinion of Hitler, viewing him as a copycat. Hitler, on the other hand, admired Mussolini and saw in him a model for his own ambitions. Hitler’s admiration for Mussolini began after the “March on Rome” in 1922, which resulted in Mussolini’s ascendance to power.

The first meeting between the two leaders in 1934 did not go well, with Mussolini reportedly unimpressed by Hitler. However, their relationship evolved as the political landscape of Europe shifted. In 1935, Mussolini invaded Ethiopia, a move condemned by the League of Nations and many countries worldwide. This international isolation pushed Mussolini closer to Hitler, who was supportive of Italy’s imperial ambitions.

In 1936, Italy and Germany formed the Rome-Berlin Axis, a term coined by Mussolini to represent the political and military alliance between the two countries. This was followed by the signing of the “Pact of Steel” in 1939, further solidifying their alliance. This pact committed both countries to support each other in the event of war, which soon followed with the outbreak of World War II later that year.

On a personal level, despite their initial cold encounters, the relationship between Mussolini and Hitler grew warmer over time, bound by mutual interests, strategic alliances, and shared ideologies. Despite this, Mussolini was often in the position of a junior partner, with Hitler tending to dominate their relationship, particularly as World War II progressed.

While Hitler’s brand of fascism was deeply intertwined with racism and anti-Semitism, Italian fascism under Mussolini did not initially emphasize these elements. However, under influence from Nazi Germany, anti-Semitic laws were implemented in Italy in 1938.

The relationship between Mussolini and Hitler ended with the fall of their respective regimes. Mussolini was overthrown and arrested in 1943, only to be rescued by German forces. He then led a Nazi puppet state in Northern Italy until 1945 when he was captured and executed by Italian partisans. Hitler died by suicide in his bunker in Berlin as Allied forces were capturing the city. The Mussolini-Hitler alliance had lasting impacts on their countries and the entire world, significantly shaping the course of the 20th century.

Considering the deep bond between Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, which was fortified over time, their sharing of classified information seems likely. This is especially true given their aligned political and military objectives. The 1933 UFO incident in Lombardy, Italy, transpired during an era when both leaders were at the height of their power. The formation of the Rome-Berlin Axis in 1936 and the signing of the “Pact of Steel” in 1939, further cemented their alliance, providing a plausible window during which information regarding the UFO could have been exchanged.
