"... what sorts of belts were to be found in Italian built aircraft?"
While various antipodes have wasted our time amusing themselves with
flippant answers, I did some checking. Looks like the several makers of
license-built products copied the originals. Ansaldo used, in at least
some cases, light-colored webbing belts of 10 cm or so, reinforced with
leather at critical junctures like the shoulder and buckle ends. The
system had separate shoulder belts and a lap belt.
And welcome, Gerardo, from Iowa in the US.
