On February 6, 2021 Fahrusha interviewed Italian journalist and author Rino Di Stefano about his book, The Zanfretta Case: Chronicle of an Incredible True Story. A 26 year old security guard, Piero Fortunato Zanfretta, who in 1978 was a dependable employee and a married man with two children, had a series of astounding encounters with entities over a period of several years. Our guest, Rino Di Stefano, himself a budding journalist in Genoa at the time, had the courage and intellectual curiosity to take the report seriously and his honest investigation of the Zanfretta case forever changed his world view.

The aspect of the encounters that caused Rino to take the Zanfretta story seriously is the many corroborating reports from other eye witnesses both on the scene and in the surrounding area. Most particularly, one of the officers present in a later Zanfretta abduction was so unnerved that he could never return to work and subsequently took his own life by suicide. After a point Zanfretta himself might be said to have had a break from consensual reality, according to Di Stefano. Alien or entity abduction is not for the faint hearted. It has been known to “fry” brains. It does not necessarily follow that the entities are trying to be harmful. Simply put, the otherness of their consciousness, is beyond human understanding, and what is revealed may cause the experiencer to be unable to process their very different reality.

On Shattered Reality Podcast, we have had other entity experiencers tell their stories. They include: Calvin Parker, Lisette Larkins, and Terry Lovelace. In addition David Booher wrote about Gerry Irwin’s experience and Ron Felber wrote on The Mohave Incident. Piero Zanfretta’s experiences seem most like Calvin Parker‘s and Gerry Irwin’s. There are also aspects of this case that sync with the Travis Walton case. Prior to Zanfretta’s experiences we are told that neither Piero Zanfretta nor Rino Di Stefano were particularly interested in UFOs.

As people who are intrigued with anomalous phenomena it is necessary to carefully examine what is happening to others in cultures around the world. We thank Rino Di Stefano for presenting us with a window into this very strange and compelling account.
