Buying a touring bike in Italy?

I might be taking a job in Italy and was wondering if Italian touring bikes are cheaper to purchase over there than in the US. I'm in the market for a touring bike I can use for both commuting and long loaded trips. Plus I think it'd be a cool souvenir to ship back when I return!

Specifically, I've got my eyes on the Cinelli Hobootleg. Looks like a solid steel frame touring bike. I like the Gazzetta Della Strada too, but it looks more like a city commuting bike. Anybody got any opinions on these two bikes? Would they be cheaper to buy in Italy? Any OTHER recommendations?

Thanks in advance!
