What a coincidence... I just got in a Griswold & Gunnison today that was purported to be a Pietta, but I don't think so. It's date code is for 1970 and it has essentially the same marking in the same place. From my limited amount of research, I believe we're looking at the "AVI" of "MAVI" for Mavi di Salvinelli who supposedly used the double-barrelled shotgun logo.
Any other ideas?

David is absolutely right, it's Mavi di Salvinelli.
