Breda Had a Facility in Rome ( look at BM59s Made by Breda for the Italian Gov't)

Can't read the rest of the stamp above the "Roma"...the rifle ( captured and/or acquired from Austria WW I, refurbished by Breda for "sale" to Greece in the 1920s ( hence the Breda disguise) The rifles could have been "checked over"
by the Centro Riparazioni Artigleria Esercito ROMA ( which Manufactured M91s in 1917-18), either during WW I or soon after; or the Breda factory in Rome could have done the checking over and "Refurbish/disguise" work. Breda was (and is still) a very Large Vertically integrated Engineering company, starting off with Locomotive construction in the 1860s, and expanding to Steel Mills, Ordnance Production (incl.Small arms, mostly MGs and MKs) and General engineering.
