I think I can tell you why it wont turn over looking at that sump, it's been run with no oil, moisture has got in and the engine has rusted up. Personally I'd take all the best bits off this car and send it to autoheaven, I hate to see an Alfa skipped but there is a point where the cost (and in this case you'll spend well over 2K) just isn't viable, I think the plan should be changed, and find another banger which has a blown engine and a load of other knackered bits but excellent shell and just rebuild that one with all the best bits.
The rust to that fwd member is also another reason to scrap her, the intergranular corrosion will work its way right through and you'll only repair it by choping it all out and welding in a new section, which requires a jig.
