Either is possible.
Your best bet is to first remove the left cup which has right hand threads either way. Then check it's thread with a caliper. It'll be 1.370, (34.8mm) or 36mm (1.41mm) for British (ISO) or Italian respectively. Knowing that will tell you which way to turn the right cup, British is left thread and removes clockwise, Italian is RH.
