That nugget of Italian bicycles having, previous to this, 80-90mm of bottom bracket drop, is very cool to me. I do like lower bottom brackets and would like to try something to that extreme. I have or have had a few that have hunted close to 80mm, and one or two just over that, but that was long ago when I didn't know nearly as much as I do now, nor felt certain characteristics.
