In the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of London for 1899-1900, there's a report about a cupmarked stone near Gignese with a drawing. Other stones are mentioned too, with the amusing detail that rubbings took nine sheets of the Daily Telegraph, and papier mache casts made with sheets of the Guardian. No penny dreadfuls for this sort of work, naturally. Or indeed local Italian papers.

Menhirs di Cavaglià (Biella) (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

One of the biggest group of menhirs of the region. It was part of a bigger megalithic site, destroyed and covered by new buildings until between the 70's and the 90's. Now what remains of the site is protected and some stone re-erected with the help of some old pictures and signs on the stones.
In fact on the monoliths there are some cup marks and a medieval cross.

Musinè standing stones — Fieldnotes

(Monte Musinè, is sure one of the most famous place for misteries. Peter Kolosimo wrote about it and about some stones on it. It's known for UFO too! But anyway, it's sure that this place it's allways been a very special place since prehistoric times).

Along the way to the top of the mountain you can find a lot of standing stones, but most of them are surely natural. I found this "alignement" on a book about megalitism on italian and swiss alps called "spiriti di pietra" by Massimo Centini, and I decided to go and to find it.

Musinè standing stones — Folklore

Monte Musine seems to have a bit of an eerie reputation? This (fairly random, I admit) page
http://www.itineraridelmistero.com/natura/il-monte-Musine.htm
talks of giants, werewolves, witches, ghosts - it's got the lot.
Perhaps there have always been tales of 'lights in the sky' and now these have a new interpretation as alien UFOs. There is prehistoric rock art here, which interestingly has also been woven into the ufo myths. According to this snippet
http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=F7pZfLUoHJIC&lpg=PA323
flying-saucery scratchings were found in the 1970s, no doubt inspired by the genuine cup marks (some of which you can see at
http://www.rupestre.net/archiv/ar7.htm and in wido_piemonte's photos of course.
