Back in 1975, I bought a brand new Spider at a Alfa dealer in Westchester, NY. A few days later, I was pulling into a gas station and what appeared to be a 'normal' curb cut apron was too steep an incline for the low slung Spider. WHAM! I heard a bang and then some kind of vibration. The optional oil pan cage had been impacted and became bent. It was up against the oil pan. Similar probable to what you have. No damage to engine at all but the cage had to be removed and straightened (by the dealer, NOT ME!)
Any time you drive the little Spider, you most always being scanning for any bumps, humps, holes or inclines that might inflict unpleasantness upon you and your prized Spider.
