Olmo & Anastasia mystery bikes

Good Day everyone,

I recently purchased a pile of bikes at auction and I'm stumped on two of them. The first is an Olmo with the campy Knockoff Brenda they used on the bottom bracket (it's been converted to SS so no derailleurs). The model is "Sprint Liguro" and I can't seem to find any info about that model. Anybody know something? I don't have any pics right now, but I can add later if necessary

The second one is without any brand names but the model is "Anastasia". It's a lightweight steel step through frame.

I'd be thrilled to learn more about these bikes. Thanks in advance for your help.

Pics are a huge help in identifying a bike. Serial numbers can help, as well.

I can't help on the Anastasia, but the Olmo should be a Ligure variant, possibly orignally spec'd with tubular (sprint) wheelsets as opposed to 700C wired-on wheelsets. The Ligure I'm familiar with was a late 1980s, mid-range model, typically manufactured with Columbus Matrix/Cromor. Like the Olmo Firenze of the same era, they're generally seen with Galli components. The Ligure model name is tribute to Celle Ligure, the Italian city which was the location of the original Olmo factory.
