Not sure if Gerry Campbell will go out to look at a car, but you could ask him. Details in the stickied thread.

Sportivo is a trim level. TS (twin spark) is the engine type. A TS Sportivo is perfectly possible. The only time you will see a trim badge on a 156 is if it's a Ti, or a GTA. For engines, you will see TS, JTS (later models only), JTD (diesel), Selespeed (auto) and V6.

Other trim levels are Veloce and Lusso (maybe Tourismo, but I think that might only be in the 147 or GT)
