The seller listed it as a "CICLI EDOARDO BIANCHI VELOCE FOR CAMPAGNOLO COLUMBUS STEEL FRAMESET" from the 80's with ITB number 2617. Does anyone know what ITB stands for?

Thanks for the help.
Welcome to the forums! Nice looking Bianchi and with a chrome fork too. Since it is coming or came from the Netherlands it is different from the US market Bianchis. The model does appear to be a Veloce and IMHO judging from the decal style and tubing type is from '86/87. I have no idea what ITB stands for it may be a European market thing.

Check for markings on the BB spindle I suspect it may be a Victory or Triomphe model and could shed some light on what the OEM setup was.
