...additionally, the BB shell in an Italian bike is wider than the 68mm standard for which your crank was designed and manufactured.
Even if you could find outboard bearings to swap out, I doubt you'd get a proper fit of the crank to your frame.

It would be nice if there were more component interchangeability in the bicycle world, but it's just not the reality.
