Hello yes there is a spacing difference in the rear dropouts. the Bianchi is likely 120 or 126MM space and the 8spd 130mm. you can just fiddle with it to get in. but in the long run haveing a pro 'spread' the stays and align the dropouts and hanger is better. there should not be a difference in the front hub spacing.
I have a question for you.. what are you going to do for brakes? are you going to get a new bridge welded on to the seat stays and maybe fork? I think the smaller wheel not meeting your brakes is a bigger issue than hub spacing
