Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A commercial skeptic Italian UFO catalogue apparently indicates that in Rivoli, Italy, in the spring of 1955, in the afternoon, a woman taking a walk along a lane turned a corner and saw a metallic disc-shaped object on the ground, with a large opening, like a window, at the front.

Reportedly, there were three men inside, one of which is described as "resembling Jesus Christ" with long black hair, and the others blond-haired. These men made friendly gestures towards the woman, then the object took off at high speed.

No other information seems to be available.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Rivoli, Italy, in the spring of 1955, in the afternoon, a woman taking a walk along a lane turned a corner and was confronted by a landed metallic disc shaped object. It had a large window like opening at the front. Inside stood three men like figures. One was described as resembling "Jesus Christ" with long black hair and the other two were described as blond-haired. The beings made friendly gestures towards the witness before the object took off at high speed.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Maurizio Verga, Itacat.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in April 1955, in Rivoli, Italy, at 07:00 p.m., a metallic disc was seen by a female witness on the ground in a town for over one minute, with three human-appearing inhuman occupants outside craft, one being Christ-like and giving the observer a warning.

The website indicates that according to Vallées' classification it was a CE4 because the witness has been abducted.

The website indicates that the sources are Albert Rosales' catalogue, and Maurizio Verga "Italian UFO Catalogue".
