Mystery Frame, with Columbus dove seat stays, Italian?

Today's Craigslist find is an Italian? bike. It was listed as a Columbus brand bike.
Heart shaped cutouts in the lugs, and the Columbus dove on the seat stays and fork crown.
The BB shell has 2 cutouts and the number 8 on it. BB and FD are Campy.
Rest of the components are a mix... Suntour AP 7speed FW, Accushift bar ends, STX headset,
Modolo bars, 3TTT stem, Campy rear brake and Dia comp front.
Frame is a 48.
Aelle tube set.

No serial number or head badge.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The only bikes I've seen that used the dove panto were Billato brothers bikes. They built bikes for Performance and for Palo Alto - I'd guess one of those two.
