Hello, welcome to BF, it looks like you found a nice, well made bike in pretty good condition. The best place to get help on identifying and learning about your Bertoni is our Classic and Vintage Forum, post some pictures, drive side facing out, in daylight against a light uncluttered background. Also, show the drive close up and front and rear angle shots with the brake sets clearly showing. If you can find the serial number show that and lastly some shots of the bottom bracket (the frames housing of the crank's spindle.)
The members there will be able to better help you out, they are a very knowledgeable group and very helpful. The lug work and presence of a pump peg say that it is probably a reasonably nice bike and the components look to be quality items for their period. Columbus tubing and Shimano 600 indexed shifting are both good to have. The exact tubing type can be determined and the C&V guys and gals probably can tell you this. Best of luck, and I hope the miles are enjoyable for you.
