This article about the Celeste or black Bianchi x4 shows the many of the same features. Is the tubing on your bike SLX with rifling inside the tubes at the bottom bracket?
The Giro doesnít have the chrome seat stays or the chrome fork so Iím going to say thatís not a match

Back in the day, catalogs were sent out to printers months before actual bike production. So changes were made afterwards. I never consider catalogs as the final statement on what was made.
