Anybody knows something about this 50ies Rigi-like bike that just went for a considerable ammount of money?

Ebay-ID: 7193705650

looks like a local framebuilders work (from Rome? other auctions of same seller suggest this)

when was the first occurrence of these split seattube-frames, by the way? so far, i've seen Rigi and Puch do this.
