Sighting Description: Il quotidiano veneto “Il Gazzettino” pubblicò numerose lettere relative ad altrettanti avvistamenti avvenuti nella zona di Jesolo. Uno in particolare era il racconto di due studenti che avevano osservato una cosa tonda, luminosa e verde, che si era posata nella laguna. Solo dopo un po’ di tempo si scoprì che tutte le lettere erano state inviate da un gruppo di ricerca, capeggiato dal prof. Franco Cagnetta, psicanalista e docente di antropologia culturale dell’Università di Parigi, che effettuava uno studio sulla creazione del mito.
