I think "lo spillone" was at some time used to describe a military jet, sharp as a pin, from there the word was derived from its original meaning.
It seems similar to "concorde", which originally meant "harmony" to describe the countries coming together to build the airplane, then Chrysler used the name for one its most aerodynamic profiled cars.
In Italian Spillone would be a large "Spillo" or a pin. Since Bianchi makes some hybrid/city bikes with the brand name Spillo, I am guessing that at one point they made a Spillo built for two, which would be a Spillone. With a name like that your tandem must look sharp.

Marcello, so it is a brand name Bianchi used on a group of hybrid/citybikes. Yes, my bike is kind of a tandem hybrid. I would guess it is from the middle of the eighties with a colormatch that clearly states circa 1985 :-) it is pretty cool I think.
