Did "Martians" land for Christmas in the Sybilline mounts?

Rome (A.F.P.).

The Martians start again to make speak about them in Italy. They allegedly chose the area of the Sybilline mounts, in the Abruzzi, to appear. Many residents of the village of Castellucio, in this area, say to have witnessed, in the night, a strange phenomenon:

A beam of light appeared behind the line of the mountains which surround the country, and, after a few moments, two dazzling headlights seemed to advance slowly on the peak of the mountains. Some people went at dawn to the place where this phenomenon occurred. On the snow covering the plate they observed traces of naked feet belonging to people of average size. A little further, they found other traces of feet, much less deep, like that of a person liftfed from the ground or carried under the arms. The traces start on the plate and disappear suddenly.

In Casteluccio, one is convinced that the Martians travelling in flying disc were constrained to stop on the mountain undoubtedly to repair their machine.
