Sighting Description: Il luogo dell’avvistamento è il Lago del Salto che è il più grande lago artificiale della Regione Lazio, creato nel 1940 dopo la costruzione di una diga alta 90 metri. Il lago, conosciuto anche con il nome di Lago del Borgo San Pietro, dal nome del paese che fu sommerso, ha una profondità di circa 90 metri e da sempre sono note leggende e storie relative a gnomi, folletti ed ufo che sarebbero visti entrare ed uscire dal logo stesso.      
   Il giorno 16 novembre, alle ore 06:30 del mattino, uno studente che stava aspettando l’autobus vide un oggetto discoidale immergersi nelle acque del lago, senza più riapparire.

On 16 November 2000, at 6.30 am—concludes Canzio—a young man who is waiting for the bus in the area claims to have seen an unidentified object dive into the water of the lake: the dimensions described (disc-shaped, length about ten meters) and the fact that it is not reappeared suggest a UFO, that is to say an unidentified object underwater.
