Caesar's phrase, which marked a historical juncture of great importance in the history of ancient Rome, has become today a way of emphasizing an important decision, a decisive event.

In referring readers unfamiliar with the Project to my previous articles on this blog, starting from this, I will say that the important pivotal moment for the Project is the recent decision of the Captains Regent to admit for consideration by the Great and General Council (the San Marino Parliament) the Instanza d'Arengo requesting that San Marino participate in the Titano Project.
But before continuing I would like to mention an interesting detail: the fateful sentence of Caesar was uttered in a place that is only a dozen kilometers from San Marino. Moving with his army toward Rome over two thousand years ago, surely Caesar could not have failed to catch sight of the imposing mass of Mount Titan, on which the Republic of San Marino stands today.

The importance for the Project
LThe note with which the Office of the Institutional Secretariat of San Marino informed the first signatory of the petition, Mr. Maurizio Pinotti (Roberto's brother), that the Captains Regent declared the conformity of the Petition and therefore its admissibility for consideration by the Great and General Council (Parliament) - kindly provided by the interested party
How it came to this point
But before I continue, I would like to express my thanks and deep gratitude for the valuable guidance kindly provided to me by Mr. Augusto Casali, a long-time San Marino politician and a fine connoisseur of the local reality, in the preparation of the text of the Instanza.
Having thus finalized during September the text of the Istanza and its annexes, towards the end of the month I went to San Marino, where the collection of signatures began.
San Marino, September 22, 2022 - The first three signatures collected for the Istanza and the title page thereof. The first signer is Mr. Maurizio Pinotti, Roberto's brother. In the photo, from left, Mr. Augusto Casali, the undersigned and Roberto Pinotti - photo by the author

What was submitted
- The Istanza
- Project Titan – Presentation for San Marino authorities
- Project Titan – Text
- Project Titan – Memorandum of Understanding for the participation in the Project
- The text of the resolution to be submitted to the United Nations
- The text of the Concept Paper
- The text of UN Decision 33/426 of 1978
This provided San Marino with everything it needed to implement the Project.
Maria Luisa Berti and Manuel Ciavatta, the Captains Regent (Heads of State) who took office on Oct. 1, 2022, who gave the go-ahead for the consideration of the Instanza d'Arengo by the Great and General Council (Parliament) - from www.libertas.sm
What happens next
The San Marino Parliament is then required to examine and debate the Istanza within the regency semester, that is, by March 2023. At the end of the debate it will express its will through a vote.
If the vote is affirmative, Parliament will issue a decree binding the government to carry out what was requested in the Istanza d'Arengo, that is, that San Marino participate in the Titan Project and implement what it provides for.
In that case, San Marino will bring the discourse on the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects, or rather unidentified aerospace-underwater phenomena, back to the attention of the United Nations after 45 years.
In case of a negative vote, of course, the proposal would lapse and could be resubmitted after three regency semesters.
What could happen next
This proposal will be delivered to the Office of the UN Secretary-General, then assigned to a particular committee for its consideration, and finally submitted to the General Assembly for a vote.
Therefore, it should be kept in mind that the proposal might not be approved by the General Assembly or even undergo unpredictable changes, as happened with the Grenada proposal of 1978.
It is important to emphasize the fact that, even in the event that the San Marino proposal should not be accepted by the UN, an important result would still have been achieved: bringing the attention of the United Nations back to the issue of the UFO/UAP phenomenon, establishing a fundamental precedent that can serve as a useful basis for the development of further initiatives in this regard.
Should San Marino's proposal be accepted by the UN General Assembly, the organization would proceed to create the new office, which would prepare the UN World Conference on the study and research of the UFO/UAP phenomenon. By doing so, San Marino would champion an initiative with great potential for all humanity and would benefit from a great notoriety in the world, which would produce positive repercussions on tourist flows and see its historical neutrality enhanced and its international prestige raised.
Moreover, in these times of international turmoil where opposition and division seem to be the rule, this initiative would have the added merit of bringing a most welcome opportunity for international cooperation, an occasion for bringing the countries of the world closer together and uniting them in the name of scientific research.
The International Public Petition (IPP)In moving toward the conclusion of this article, I cannot fail to mention PPI. This informal action, which took place on September 2022 with the aim of raising awareness among San Marino authorities of the interest that the Titan Project has already aroused globally, saw the dispatch of just over 500 messages from 45 countries around the world. This is a result that I consider satisfactory, given that the initiative was conducted without the support of the major media.
Statistical data on the messages that were sent through the IPP campaign.
As I approach the end of this article, I would like to express the hope that the foresight and wisdom of the members of the San Marino Parliament will lead them to make the best choice in the interest of the Republic and in favor of understanding the UFO/UAP phenomenon.
And, as has become customary in these Project Titan update articles, I am pleased to conclude this one in the same manner:
The enchanting, neutral setting of the city of San Marino and its Mount Titan, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, could truly become the new "Geneva of UFOs."
