These are the clues I have so found far about Pagnini:

1. The bike has Italian flags all over it 2. CR member Mark Agree showed us a Pagnini stem he got from Florence 3. The Pagnini has fleur de lys cut outs in the lugs and in the head tube decal. Fleur de lys in a prominent icon in Florence and is part of that city's coat of arms 4. There is a Pagnini hotel in Florence owned by, yes, the CINELLI family 5. The model of the bike I am researching is the MONTREAL. Marinoni of Quebec knows nothing of this bike, so it's not a sub-brand made for the Canadian market. 6. The Montreal uses Columbus tubing 7. Yes there is a Pagani as well. A CR member showed us a Pagani racing jersey. I have not seen a frame however.

Thanks to all those helping with this scavenger hunt,
