Can you use a Ritchey Pro or Comp stem with a Cinelli bar?
Make sure they are all 26.0 clamp diameter (most Cinelli) nmSpunout

Older Cinelli bars used to have a clamp size that was just enough bigger that they wouldn't work with most other manufacturers' stems. I don't think that's quite so true anymore. Open face plate stems make cheating on clamp size a quite bit easier to do, but the idea of "squish" fitting a nice Cinelli handlebar doesn't sit well with me. If it was my bike, I'd get out the calipers and make sure that the handlebar and stem match.

The current WCS and PRO stems have lables on them that indicate NO 26.0 bars.

I think TTT and ITM bars are 25.8mm... you can find bars CHEAP on ebay.. I think I saw a TTT fogie bar about to go for $16 today.
