I don't know why you don't feel it's a Bianchi, but I can't help you there. It does seem to have a "Made in Italy" decal, so that would support the notion that it's a Bianchi. In any event, what's in a name. Bianchi is one of the few brands left that actually owns a factory and produces a decent number of the bikes in house, but like everyone else (Trek, Specialized, Raleigh, etc.), they also sell frames made for them by others.
BTW I can help you on a minor point though. Your rear brake cable is routed wrong. It's on the right of the stem, then has to go over and half way around the top tube to enter the hole. Your rear brake will work much better if the cable passes to the left of the stem eliminating the extra bends.
Otherwise, it's a nice bike. Ride and enjoy it, and don't obsess over stuff that doesn't matter.
