The wide sans-serif typeface for "Digiuni Luigi" is also used in the label of Carlo Carletti. 
The remaining texts of the Diguini are in OS Expended and Scotch/Modern perhaps? But that's not the point. The brands in this bass is also very interesting, the first in Art-Nouveau style, and the second, normal sans serif. Answers on the wide sans-serif and the brands will be greatly appreciated.

The wide sans is Bastoni larghi. I don’t know where it originated.

Thanks! But this image may not be clear enough for a digital copy, unfortunately.

I agree, it’s too small for making a digitization that is faithful (I don’t have a larger version). On the other hand, I doubt that this design needs a direct digitization, other than maybe for academic purposes. It is rather unattractive.
