It is usually the thread of the BB that is either Italian or BSC/English "everyone else", not the taper.
Italian BB cups are both right-hand thread where as with an English BB the left side cup is a right-hand
thread and vice versa.
The taper of axles varies, the most common is a two-degree taper and will work with most cranks.
To tell the taper of a crank easiest way is just by brand..
Your questions are sort of odd, don't know if I helped. What crank/bb do you have?
