ACUFO:

ACUFO is my comprehensive catalog of cases of encounters between aircraft and UFOs, whether they are "explained" or "unexplained".

The ACUFO catalog is made of case files with a case number, summary, quantitative information (date, location, number of witnesses...), classifications, all sources mentioning the case with their references, a discussion of the case in order to evaluate its causes, and a history of the changes made to the file.

Italy, in the Summer of 1944:

Case number:

ACUFO-1944-00-00-ITALY-1

Summary:

There was apparently a mention in Keith Chester's 2007 book "Strange Company - Military Encounters with UFOs in World War II" of a summer 1944 sighting in Italy of a "stationary egg-shaped object, glistening metallically."

I note that it is not certain that the witness(es) was or were pilot(s) in flight, I do not have this information so far.
