The noted professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Florence analyzed the strange sticky white substance that fell from the skies of Florence on October 27, 1954.
Professor Giovanni Canneri was a well-known professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Institute of the University of Florence. He was present when George Batini and other locals arrived with samples of the sticky white substance that had fallen all over Florence. He did a spectrographic analysis of the material. His findings concluded that the substance was nonradioactive and its composition had the elements boron, silicon, magnesium, and calcium. However, this process also destroyed the samples.
