Roberto Pinotti was born in Venice, Italy, in 1944. He is a journalist and author and the main Italian ufologist. According to his website, he has a degree in political science and applied social sciences from the University of Florence, a professional journalism qualification, and a degree in Business Administration and Management Science.

Since 1960 he has searched for any available documentation or information about the UFO phenomena. He is the founder and President of Italy's Centro Ufologico Nazionale (CUN), established in 1967. He represented Dr. Hynek's CUFOS in Italy.

Formerly an officer of the NATO Italian Army III Missile Brigade, near Venice. He was the only Italian ufologist to participate in the French Groupement d'Étude des Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés (GEPAN) and SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence). Since 1993 he organized the first "International UFO Symposium", in the Republic of San Marino. He is also a writer for the Rivista Aeronautica of the Italian Air Force. As a sociologist Pinotti is also a proponent of several international rules of conduct for post-contact with extraterrestrial intelligent beings.

UFO Studies
"The Big Game" (Il Grande Gioco) and Enrico Fermi's paradox
He has a proposed solution for Enrico Fermi's paradox (briefly: "If extraterrestrials do exist, why haven't they been detected?"). His proposal is that humans live in a sort of Indian reserve under an agreement he calls "The Big Game" (Il Grande Gioco) between Earth governments and E.T. beings in order not to reveal themselves. As a sociologist Pinotti explains this arrangement could be aimed at preventing the anomiethat might result from a breakdown of traditional assumptions and values.

1933 UFO crash near Milan
In 2000 he published material regarding the so-called "Fascist UFO Files", which dealt with a flying saucer that had crashed near Milan in 1933 (some 14 years before the Roswell, New Mexico crash), and of the subsequent investigation by a never mentioned before Cabinet RS/33, that allegedly was authorized by Benito Mussolini, and headed by the Nobel scientist Guglielmo Marconi. Debris of a spaceship were allegedly stored in a hangar in Vergiate and later captured by US troops in 1945.

His latest books published by Philip Mantle's Flying Disk Press: UFO CONTACTS IN ITALY - VOLUME ONE & VOLUME TWO. Volume one starts before the 1947 modern UFO era right through to 1979. Volume two begins in 1979 through to 2020.

This guy has been closely involved with UFO research for a long long long time. He worked with such early UFO groups as APRO and was a colleague and friend of Dr. J. Allen Hynek.

And he'll also be present on this weekend's After The Paracast. He has an endless amount of things to talk about, including whether he has had his own paranormal encounters.
