notebook font encoding

I have received a notebook written with Mathematica presumably on
an Italian Windows machine. Displaying it on my Macintosh I get many
accented letters wrong (some look right, though).

I tried opening it with OpenSpecial with Latin1 and other encoding,
but I couldn't get the display right.

Does anybody know what the $SystemCharacterEncoding is for Italian
Windows machines?

Is it possible that a notebook edited on two different machines at
different times gets a mixture of encodings?

Best regards,
Gianluca Gorni
