Jose Caravaca has provided a few covers from the Italian weekly newspaper supplement, La Domenica del Corriere, which published for 90 years -- 1899 to 1989.

The covers and stories were always sensationalized.

If only the UFOs drawn by the supplement were as depicted....

  • I think some background information on the publication would be helpful. No offense intended, but the illustrations, as you pointed out have a science fiction \ comic book aura about them. Was this stuff source checked prior to publication, or is it one of those, send in your fantastic story sort of thing? If it is what I suspect it is, then the information goes right into the shredder somewhat like junk mail.

  • Now Bruce I know you'd like to keep me busy and out of trouble, but I'm only interested in the drawings.

    You can Google La Domemica del Corriere and find a nice Wikepedia account that will give you all the info you seek.

  • Looking at the cover on your post, interesting that the size of the "alien" seems to have the characteristics of a simian nature (monkey).

    I draw no clear conclusions other than to point it out.

    Jose Caravaca has dealt with this episode...the Lotti confrontation.

    It might be found at his blog with us, The Caravaca Files:

    This incident (and its depiction) has been a favorite of mine for many years.

  • Bruce:

    Jose Caravaca sent me this about your query (above):

    Bruce, he should know that all the drawings published in the newspaper Domenica del Corriere, refer to UFO encounters "real", interpreted by their artists so splendid, and realistically, and more or less adjusted to the descriptions of witnesses.

  • I agree the illustrations are splendid. I collect vintage lithographed prints among other vintage stuff and these are wonderful renderings. I wouldn't mind a full sized reproduction of one for my home office. As far as the authenticity of what they illustrate is another matter altogether. As vintage commercial art, no questions on authenticity.
