Help ID this bike

Pictures listed below -
Purchased around 60's and the only information I can find with the parts = Olmo / Frejus although the lugs look different; almost similar to Olmo lugs.

Not really pictured but cranks = Magistroni
Campagnolo R/F/S = Gran Sport
Original wheels = Cideo Extra hubs; no info on rims

The lug detailing looks quite different although this seems like a hard one

I've seen those lugs on Atala bikes. Are there holes for a headbadge on the head tube?

Look the frame over closely for a serial number. Every bit of info helps.

The color looks like Legnano, but it doesn't have the distinctive Legnano seat post binder:

No way it can be an Olmo ?
Lugs / components look somewhat similar.

Anyone with an old Olmo fill in ?
Thanks for the help all.

Not an Olmo. I spent some time looking at Italian bikes over at the CR site and the Garlatti was the only marque that looked similar to your bike. Perhaps it's a mid level Garlatti?

Here are a few pics of my 1964 Olmo. Seat stays are very different.
