Reading your description of symptoms, it looks like you have minor leaks---more "seepage' than leaks. By examining the block for visible leaks you'll know where that oil is coming from (and lets hope it's not coming from a main seal). Your description of oil-in-the-water indicates seeapage which is something Alfa addressed back in the days when Nord 2 liters were new and having oil leaks. Alfa suggested that shops and owners add a product called "Alumaseal" which consists of finely granulated aluminum flakes which are fine enough to not foul the oil pump or clog the thermostat but will use system pressure to find and seal seepage leaks. A can of Alumaseal and a careful re-torque (since you appear to have never done this, there's some discussion on the bb about how and when to re-torque). I've never been one to shy away from fast-and-dirty solutions to exotic cars (it's my red-neck coming out, I fear) so the very first thing I'd do is add a can of Alumaseal and see what happens.
