"Clara Italian" Bike

http://maine.craigslist.org/bik/915958286.html

So the ad is pretty much everything I know about the bike. It looks like a lower end model but doesn't have stem shifters or assist levers. I'm probably going to pick it up no matter what but if anybody has any background info I wouldn't mind knowing.
