ATX IO shield area, 2x USB 1.1, PS/2 mouse, PS/2 keyboard, parallel, serial

The only remarking writing I could read is "LISBON" behind the PCI slots. It has part No. 586-0395, layout date is 98/03/11, production week of the PCB is 17/98.

Do you know who manufactured the Board and is there a user manual for it?

The board is inside this Olivetti M6000 DT520 desktop PC. I know that Olivetti in it's late PCs used often mainboards made directly by Intel but this one does not look like Intel.

I already checked here and here without finding something identical.

to find out look at the oem signon at the bottom of the post screen it shows manufacturer and chipset and etc.
That information can be useful in google and usually bios modder forums like wims bios have a database for you to look up
but if that motherboard has the same logo on top right hand corner of post then isn't that question answered?
I mean LISBON would be just the oem model name for market so it doesn't look like a cheap generic faceless oem.
Some companies had pride in their workmanship it wasn't just a motherboard it had a name 🤣

This looks and sounds suspiciously like an Intel OEM board.

The layout and style on the photo look Intel-like, and Intel typically gave its boards codenames based on the letters of the model name expanded to a city, so PD440FX was 'Portland', DB440FX 'Dublin' etc. Although I can't find any Google hits, I'd be willing to wager this is an Intel LB440FX, LI440FX or LS440FX or similar, custom-made for Olivetti. It looks a lot like the PD440FX, but with 168p DIMM slots instead of 72p SIMM slots, and dipswitches instead of the typical Intel mid-1990's jumper blocks.

It can't be 440FX based, since it has AGP. The FX is an old PCI-only chipset that was originally designed for Pentium Pro systems.
Your picture is a little small, but It looks like you have EDO DIMMs, so it's probably a 440LX motherboard (440BX doesn't support EDO).

P6 chip. Triple the speed of the Pentium.
