I can't read Italian. Is there an English translation of this study
that we can analyze? Cascella, you have often comments in this forum
with claims about what is apparently a system with which you are
associated, but I do not recall disclosure about the details of your
system in a manner that allows independent verification. Independent
verification is the hallmark of science. A group studying its own
system is not independent verification.

Best regards,
