So, should I attempt to turn the Bianchi into a fixie or would that be a criminal act ?

If I should do it, the OLD is 130mm - what impact does that have on chainline and rear hub selection ?

If this bike is the equivalent to a Campione d' Italia as Binachigirl points out, then you would be well advised to leave it alone and let it do what it does best.
You should consider all the new fixed gear offerings from the major manufacturers which are, not so surprisingly, better at being fixed gears.
