MANZONI frame

Can anyone provide any information on a MANZONI frame which might have been produced in the 1970's please ?
The lugs were drilled in a similar fashion to the Cinelli lugs and the drop-outs were Campagnolo.
I suspect that Manzoni was a bicycle retailer at the time, who like several other retailers and not only in Italy, bought in frames and applied their own paintwork and decals.
It has been whispered that the frames might have been provided by Rossin, who it is alleged also built frames for Cinelli at some time.

The frame I was referring to is eBay number 320973617883 and I'm convinced that Manzoni did not manufacture the frame, but that's only a hunch. The photograph close-up of the stem is unusual, with the "odd" letters on the front ?
I have now seen an old condorino Manzoni bicycle photograph on Flickr but it's very poor quality.
