Pottery Mystery -- HELP

Here is a another recent purchase that I need help identifying.

... more modern stuff ??

As you can see from the mark, this was made in Italy and also seems to have a makers ? mark of I/R. Other than that, there is nothing more I know about this vase, with out just guess work.
It feels "post war modern", the glazes used are finely fired and the colours bright and fresh, quite a cheerful pot, unlike British studio pottery which is generically gloomy and brown. The painted "ITALY" mark is not unusual, as it is seen on many pots by many different makers, such as Bitossi or Fratelli Fanciullacci.
So.... if you know any thing about this... then please leave a comment.
