I did think this was a nice frame until I saw that big blob of braze on the left chainstay.

When I look at the BB , I think "France" more than Italy.

I tried to find clear pics of that bb shell but these are the best ones I could find. While I'm not sure who manufactured these, I only remember seeing them on Rizzato made frames. These are all off of Atalas:

I'd say this not-nago is a Rizzato made frame, most likely an Atala although it could have been a contract build for someone else. Something along the lines of this.
