you may find a specific date marked on the backside of the cycle's Simplex Prestige rear derailleur

frame constructed of ┴grati bulge-formed head of the ""─M"" pattern

fork crown, from what can be seen in image, appears to be Agrati "BRIANZA" pattern

frame pattern is termed a berceau

headset is Agrati model in economy zinc finish, pattern also offered in chrome finish. may be able to identify a specific model with more images

chainset is Agrati Thompson pattern, in this design the spindle is permanently affixed to the drive side arm
the non-drive end of the spindle is splined
the spindle hole in the non-drive crank arm has matching splines
what at first may appear to be a crank cotter is actually a pinchbolt

possible that drive train may be all 1/8" rather than the 3/32" one would normally expect on a derialleur geared bicycle

steel brake calipers appear to exhibit economy zinc finish

seat lug, bottom bracket shell and frame ends Agrati

pedals and hubs may be Agrati

wheel rims may be Maccari

Made it out to the bicycle shed yesterday and had a closer look at the drive train. juvela was correct. It is a 1/8 chain similar to a single speed or internal hub setup.
