Can you get a better photo of the dropouts?

That's a generous weld on the cross brace for the rear forks isn't it? That surprises me if it's supposed to be a quality frame, but it's probable I have no idea.

I've never seen or heard of this bianchi before.
Seems to be late 90's - pre 2005 possibly.

Thanks Jeremy. :)

It's a converted road frame....

Vertical drop outs torched off and track ends welded on, slopily.

It started life as a Bianchi Mega Pro XL

Here's another one:

Pretty much you can assume the geo was thrown out of the window with the frame having been butchered and evidence painted over. That brake bridge and the work on it as pictured above is not original at all.

You're welcome!

Unrelated, I hate faux-Arabic typefaces. If they wanted their name in Arabic it would be something like بليك
