Wooden Wheel bought in Chile

Hey
was hoping you may be able to help with the Identification of this wheel
I picked it up in a antique store in Valaparasio Chile will on holiday

Details are :Rear wheel 36spoke, flip flop hub no markings, sprocket has the name Todo Dolas Orbea Doble Hilera stamped into it. There is also a decal on the rim which I have no idea what it says.
Can email you any images that are required. Hope you can help or point me in the right direction .

thankyou for your time
James

It looks like an older Italian wooden rim.

You might contact Ric Hjertberg at Wheel Fanatyk for info about your rim. Ric is U.S. distributor for Ghisallo wooden rims, and may be familiar with the decal on your rim.

I can make out what looks like "pianzone (Bianzone?) torino" on the decal, but the rest is too deteriorated for me to tell.

Batelli Bianzone Torino

The first 2 sound like common Italian last names, Torino is, well... Torino (Turin)

sounds like an extinct company name...

Bianzone is also the name of a city in Italy, but it's nowhere near Turin.

I wonder if those five rings on the decal have anything to do with the olympics.
