In October of 1954, the football match between the Italian teams Fiorentina and Pistoiese was disrupted by something rather mysterious. And up until today, these Fiorentina UFOs remain to be one of the most mysterious UFO cases in the world.
Around 10 thousand people watching the game at the Artemio Franchi stadium witnessed a massive UFO sighting.
Finally, the football match had to be postponed “because the spectators saw something in the sky” read the official report of the match referee.
One of the players, defender Ardico Magnini, a popular player at the time who also played the World Cup of 1954, also gave a statement.
“I remember everything from A to Z,” he said.
“It was something that looked like an egg that was moving slowly, slowly, slowly. Everyone was looking up and also there was some glitter coming down from the sky, silver glitter.”
“We were astonished we had never seen anything like it before. We were absolutely shocked.”
Magnini also remembered how a very strange sticky material fell on the stadium’s ground.
