Hood Frame Snapped

I had a good look at the hood on the SPider today, something wasn't right on the passenger side, found one of the main frame members has snapped. It appears to have been welded before, and has snapped again alongside the weld, so it must be under a hell of a load!

the car is going into an independent Alfa garage tomorrow for a timing belt, I'll ask if they can weld it again, but if the answer is no, then does anyone on here know where I can source replacement hood/frame metal parts?

Also, It looks such a strong part, I'm surprised it snapped(twice! ) is it a common problem?
