The incident took place on 6th December 1978 in Genoa, Italy. According to the UFO reports, the name of the witness was Fortunato Zanfretta and the mission goal was abduction for medical experiments.
Shortly after midnight, Zanfretta was on duty in Torriglia, a village near Genoa. The road was full of film of snow and ice and the night was moonless. As Zanfretta approached a client’s inhabited country house in the area of Marzano, his patrol car mysteriously stopped. The car engine, lights and radio all failed for no reason. Then he saw four strange lights moving about in the garden of the house and he stepped outside his car to investigate. At first, he thought they were burglars and so he moved through the open gate carrying a gun and a flashlight. He felt touched from behind and upon turning around he saw something that filled him with terror. He described the creature as green, ugly and frightful creature with undulating skin and about 10 feet tall. On turning the flashlight to the creatures face, he dropped it and started running to which he saw that a triangular flat form was blinding him with light from behind. He tried to defend himself by covering his eyes with his arm. He felt a heavy amount of heat to which he ran back to his car and tried to call for help. He was found one hour later lying down in front of the country house by local policemen and officials. Zanfretta lost his memory and three days later he was abducted again. After weeks under trauma, under hypnotic regression he remembered meeting the aliens who forced him on to their ship into a hot, round room and performed painful medical experiments on his head before releasing him.
