I have a set of aluminium bolts and nuts for record brakes and even a kit of two alloy bolts and the fitting round counterpieces for a two bolt campy seat post on my 72 Chesini. These were made by FT also of Bologna (or Milano, i am not sure about the city): I got them via ebay from a guy in the netherlands. I have also seen a set of QR-skewers made by FT and promoted as being made of titanium... So there were a couple of companies around for these parts....

Bologna has long been a manufacturing center for screw machine and CNC machining of aluminum and titanium parts for many different industries including the bicycle industry. My distributing company imported Roto and Cobra lightweight parts from Bologna in the 1980's. OMAS parts also came from the Bologna area.
