By the way, my _guess_ is that many of those Atala frames that are very light, yet bear no tubing sticker, were made from Falck tubing.

The question I have is whether Falck made special steering tubes, similar to the ones made by Columbus? Or might a manufacturer have used Falck frame tubing and a Columbus steering tube? And what about those Columbus "Tre Tubi" frames? Would those have used Falck seatstays, chainstays, steering and head tubes, to go along with the 3 Columbus main tubes?
