Convert Horizontal Dropouts to Vertical drops

Is this possible. I want to convert my singlespeed Bianchi sass frame horizontal dropouts to vertical drops to handle a deraullier. How do i go about doing this. Please let me know.
Thanks
Chris

Why would you want to ruin such a beautiful bike by doing that?

If you want a geared bike, it would be easier and probably actually cheaper to sell the SASS and buy another bike.

Plus the frame has no derrailer cable stops. Sell it if you don't want it and buy a nice geared steel frame.
