I don't think so. I think Manfrotto plates are hexagonal, gitzo are square? But don't take my word for it.

I also wouldn't get a non-arco-swiss compatible head. Maybe a head with traditional screw, and i'd fit a 3rd party quick release adaptor (RRS, novoflex, etc...)

Both should be square now. My Manfrotto 486(?) has a square plate.  I also have a Gitzo head, but it is a non quick release type.

It looks like that neither Manfrotto nor Gitzo heads are popular....
