Alfa parts do, indeed, seem disproportionately expensive - but I've found the answer: run a 40 year old Alfetta saloon and buy all your parts from the main dealer.
The last time I tried to do that was in the hope of buying genuine oil and air filters from my local dealer. The parts guy looked it up on his computer, looked me in the eye and confidently announced, "there's no such car sir".
Maybe the only thing worse than over-priced dealer parts is no parts at all - not even a filter. And the only thing worse than that is for the dealer to deny that the car ever existed...
