Hi:

I think your aquarium maybe by Alfredo Barbini.

Hi again FLoris:

I would say that link you found is not the same.  Mainly because of the lines in the your fish (more rounded).  I believed your aquarium is made by Alfredo Barbini from his furnace not by Cenedese.  This is a good thing!  Alfredo Barbini is a master at aquariums.  We recently had a discussion on another forum about your kind of aquarium.  I learned a lot about them from another fellow member and friend.  Here it is: http://www.fossilfly.com/Forums/showthread.php?t=2997
If you don't mind me asking.  How much did you pay?  They are usually quite pricey.
