And AFAIK, UFIP was quite state-subsidized in the fascist era. So it's not all so simple.
Your assessment that it's not simple is echoed in the Luca Luciano book. He suggests that there were shortages at the beginning of the war which were later remedied because the Italian Government decreed that cymbals were important for the war effort and should get their tin and copper. I simplified the account because I was just mentioning what Luca had to say about the time close to 1939. Apologies for over simplifying or quoting too short a passage.

Did he bring anything else related to drums and cymbals? Was he a professional musician. If he just brought that one cymbal among his personal possessions it seems an odd choice for someone leaving for ever with a limited amount of baggage.

I agree and Ive thought about that but I have no idea. He died in 1971. I never knew him. I have though seen pictures of him holding a guitar .
