That is certainly not written in the manuals of any of the Alfas I owned.
They have generally advised not drive the car hard until it toughly warm. This means to rev it too high (over 3000 RPM) or pressure it at low rev (below 2000 RPM).
As I remember, the general speed limit in the US then was 55 MPH; the advice might have been given, as Alfa considered 5th gear to be to high for a cold engine and transmission to pull.
