Help identifying frame builder please? Photos attached.

This is a recent purchase and restoration frame. Was painted gold rather badly and had an italian flag sticker on it. It has been repainted and had gear change fitments brazed onto the tubing and new crosspiece on the back forks to attach brake fitments. Other than that the frame is untouched from original. The underneath of the bottom bracket is stamped "NERVEX". The seat post tube has "72" stamped on it. One of the drop outs is stamped 33. Please see photographs. Had ideas of the builder identity and the model, but hit a dead end. Any help would be most welcome!

Frame number is under bottom bracket 134384. Has the letter D and U on the front forks...
