REGIANNE L-105 fighter project. Does anyone have any information on this proposed mid-engined fighter to have been powered by the equally rare ALFA-ROMEO Type 101 28-cylinder aero-engine?

Welcome aboard Xylstra,

but I think that's wrong,the only site spoke about this is here;
http://www.stormomagazine.com/.search?query=reggiane&hits=10&offset=50&use_boss

although the Re-105 was an engine ?.

Search the topic " Caproni Ca.133 unbuild versions"
Caproni MCT and Caproni Trigona. :)

As I expected,it was an engine,not fighter;

Any reason why, in these Caproni contexts, the engine is referred to as L-105 rather than Re.105?

Yes. We've covered this a few times. It is the Caproni Vizzola MCT (Monoposto Caccia Trigona) designed by Emmanuale Trigona (colonnello, Genio aeronautico, ruolo ingegneri). The three planned powerplant options for the MCT are shown. On the Reggiane 'M-18' engine, the designation is sometimes given as: Re L 103 RC 100I.

Reggiane was a part of the Caproni group. The Re.103 engine was an 18-cylinder, three-bank, inverted engine based on Reggiane's experience with the DB601/605 and the Isotta-Fraschini Asso 1000 W-18.
