Bottom bracket options for a Colnago Master

I've bought a Colnago Master LX10 and need to buy a groupset. I'm favouring Campag Record 11 speed 2015 but I do know that the frame bottom bracket is threaded in the 'Italian way'. Not totally clear what this precludes me from buying (if anything) - I can see mention of 'English threaded' on some Campag groupsets but some seem not to mention it.

Can anyone enlighten?

    You'll need an Italian bb - threaded, like the English one, but 70mm rather than 68mm and both cups are threaded the same way rather than one being reverse threaded like the BSA English Threaded.
