Superficially, it's not a bad paper at all.
One thing which immediately springs to mind:
I don't see a control experiment with light
water mentioned anywhere. 
Also, loading of Pd by hydrogen (or deuterium)
produces cracks. I don't see thinning of the 
electrode and fusing the result by current 
ruled out anywhere in the paper.

# I will ask them, at ENEA, about
light water and Joule effects.
I hope they are still alive.

I think they made these checks,
since the experiment began
in 1996, and ended in 2002
with that final report (but they
wrote many reports before that one).

Note that the theoretical excess
power (from DD ->  4He) is 10 times 
larger than the observed excess power. 
It means that the predicted excess 
power is radiation going everywhere.

It would be easy to detect this ghost
radiation taking IR, X, Gamma, or 
whatever else pictures. (In fact they 
planned to do that). 

It seems to me that the gap between 
the observed excess power and the 
theoretical excess power is not 
a minor problem, with cold fusion.
