you'll need to be more specific. up until the late 80's derosa's basic lineup usually only consisted of a single road and a single track model with a few low volume specialty framesets sporadically & briefly cropping up like the aerodynamica's. the early bikes had no serial numbering and evolved slowly, varying in small incremental details such as braze-on fittings, decalling, logo enscriptions,bridges, fork crowns and bottom bracket shells,etc.
after about 87 when the company moved from a small workshop into larger facilities, the number and variety of models expanded rapidly.
mostly detailed pics work best to identify & date any particular derosa
there's a few catalogs here spanning from the mid/late 70's to the late 80's that you might want to look at-
here's another nice resource-
so I've got my hands on a de rosa with no bb cutout and serial no. A4
the paint / decals don't match anything found in the catalogs posted here
that's the same frame it seems but there's no info as to what year it is

Looks to be late 80's and very nice, indeed.
