Subject: [CR]mystery italian bike

while shopping in my hometown munich, i stumbled for the second time across an interesting example of early 80ies (?) italian (probably) handwork (gosh i hope it fits in the timeline). its polished parts are gold plated, the rest has green glazing on it. its features hint towards something of higher quality... cinelli stamped brake bridge, pantoed stem and fork crown. the seat stays have a "cx" pantoed on, and the head badge is "Jesolo" written inside an "S". The name was on the frame, but didn't tell me much, and unfortunately it is unreadable on the pics (only had a cellphone on me). The parts are Campa record brakes and some shimano 600 cranks and shifting, probably of later date.

Any hints about the maker or age?

Martin Appel, Munich Germany, who doesn't kno whether to feel happy that such a nice bike is still used, or to feel sorry that it is probably being beaten down as a daily hack...
