Welcome to Mycotopia and have a great time. As for those references above from my CD-ROM book, "Teonanacatil: A bibliography of entheogenic fungi," co authored by Dr. Jochen Gartz, You can probably access them in your local University Library in whatever major city you live in or are near.
Glad to have you.
Maybe sometime I will post an Italian paper for you. I also have fungi books and papers by Antonio Bianchi and Francisco Festi, also of Italy.
