Cyclezine (http://www.cyclezine.net/) has published images of the "ITALY vs. JAPAN" article which appeared in the July, 1982 issue of BICYCLING.
Three bikes from Italy and Japan are evaluated and compared. From Italy: De Rosa "Super Prestige", Guerciotti "Jet", and a Rossin "Record". From Japan: 3Rensho, Fuji "Professional", and a Miyata "Team".
All the Italian bikes used Campagnolo Super Record. The 3Rensho was equipped with Shimano Dura-Ace AX; the Fuji Professional with SunTour Superb, and the Miyata Team with Shimano Dura-Ace EX.
An interesting read if you want to travel back to 1982.
