buffer-file-coding-system is iso-latin-1-dos. I think it should be
iso8859-1, but the variable's description does not says it is
customizable.

"C-u C-x =" prints:

  character: … (133, #o205, #x85, U+0085)
    charset: eight-bit-control (8-bit control code (0x80..0x9F))
 code point: #x85
     syntax:    which means: whitespace
buffer code: #x85
  file code: not encodable by coding system iso-latin-1-dos
    display: by this font (glyph code)
     -outline-Courier New-normal-r-normal-normal-13-97-96-96-c-*-
iso8859-1 (#x85)

Following the documentation, I've tried to customize "current-language-
environment" to "Italian" and restarting "eshell", but it doesn't
change anything.

Thanks.
