UPO (C0037 A Gleam in the Fog) – SU, Materials after analysis: Flexeine, urethane, silicone, CR-39, PMMA, steel, pigment, acrylic polymer emulsion, cellulose, aluminium, 16x16x18cm. TLSB certified.
Statement of facts:
On 19/11/2020 my colleague Julia had something very urgent to tell me: where the river Oglio flows into main stem river Po, the previous day around 11pm, in proximity of the restaurant Pane, Amore e Fantasia, a unique object has been discovered.
After reaching Scorzarolo and finally with the object in my hands, I can confirm its surprisingly glimmering qualities, its extreme solidity and flexibility.
The found item resembles a popular pair of sunglasses but it is clearly something else from them. Not too sure about what to do next, I began circulating the image of the item through my channels.
The response was contrasting, some affirm that the object might belong to the half-exiled dramaturge Fernando Arrabal, others that might be a lost property of Edoardo Monti, founder and director of Palazzo Monti.
I remain extremely doubtful and suspicious about the matter. Despite that, I have a strong presentiment that the object might be a new form of UPO (Unidentified Performing Object) sent to us from a parallel dimension by the visionary Italian filmmaker Lina Mangiacapre.

UPO (C0037 Glaucus Atlanticus) – SU, 2020, Materials after analysis: Flexeine, urethane, silicone, CR-39, PMMA, steel, pigment, acrylic polymer emulsion, cellulose, aluminium, 16x22x18cm. TLSB certified.
As an extension of ‘C0037: A Gleam in the Fog ‘, this rare UPO was discovered on 06/12/2020, in Pavullo Nel Frignano (Modena, Italy). It was brought to us by the sudden flooding of the river Panaro.
The form and the coloration of this specimen seems to refer to the Glaucus Atlanticus, better known as Dragon Slug or Blue Angel; an hermaphrodite gastropod mollusk which can be usually found drifting on the surface of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans in temperate and tropical waters.
I am not sure about what to think about this latest finding; the only thoughts that keep banging in my head are: ‘We are really messing up the planet in which we live!’ and ‘Is this reality the only possible reality?’
UPO (C0037 Grapsus Grapsus) – SU, 2020, Materials after analysis: Flexeine, urethane, silicone, CR-39, PMMA, steel, pigment, acrylic polymer emulsion, cellulose, aluminium, 16x16x18cm. TLSB certified.
As the Panaro river in Emilia Romagna returns to a ‘normal’ flow; it left behind another abnormal object.
The form and the coloration of this finding seems refer to the Grapsus Grapsuas, also known as Galapagos Crab or Abuete Negro; a crab which can be usually found along the Pacific coast of Mexico, Central America, South America and nearby islands as the Galápagos.
After a closer inspection, I have all the reasons to believe it is another UPO (Unidentified Performing Object). Furthermore, l’m currently working on the chemical analysis of the item: beyond being strongly connect to the natural terrestrial ecosystem, it seems having in its atoms an unknown elastic component.
I will keep you posted about further developments, when possible.
L(UPO) – SU, 2021, Materials after analysis: Flexeine, urethane, silicone, CR-39, PMMA, steel, pigment, acrylic polymer emulsion, cellulose, aluminium, 16x16x18cm. Uncertified.
Latest finding, dated 20/02/2021. I have absolutely no information about this item which was delivered directly to the door of my Italian office by a UPS courier. The courier didn’t know anything about the sender, which name was scratched away from the package and therefore unreadable.
Could this be from Lina?
For complete information, TLSB refused to certify this item as a UPO, I still don’t understand why Sybil was so adamant about this decision.
