The RYCO website lists A1851 for the Air Filter, with 88mm ID and 158mm OD. The K& N site lists E-2991 and it cross references the RYCO product and OEM product. Refer to respective links below. The ID of the Ryco and K&N are within 1mm of each other and can not explain why they do not fit. Maybe check with K&N or RYCO via contact thru their website. I am sure their Technical Department will respond accordingly.

Si tu le peux parler FranÁais...

ID 95, OD 146, length 218mm

I think EAI should carry the Purflux range.

Bet they have given you an cylindrical air filter for a Alfa Romeo Giulietta from the 60s.   ;D

Does this look like what you currently have -

Great, gives you a starting point.

Iíve used EAI for parts over a good number of years (since before they sold Alfa stuff actually!) and would generally recommend them. Theyíre absolutely not the only option, but worth talking to. Like most parts suppliers they will ask for your VIN first up.
