I will stick my neck out here...having seen a number of Rossins back in the time and at a few shops, they were nice Italian frames somewhere close to a Basso or perhaps a Somec. I've also seen them up close on rides. Mid-level in price vs. Masi, Cinelli, Olmo, DeRosa, Colnago, etc. I didn't see the link to the picture. No doubt some one out there can provide more color on the Rossin.
