It's English. Sometime in the '90s, Bianchi switched from the Italian to the more common English standard. The absolutely best way to tell is to take an English BB cup and try to thread it into the shell. If it has no bite on the threads, the BB shell is Italian threaded. If it threads in, then the shell is English.
Thanks for the help (nm)IRIE
