Bianchi model identification

Hello guys. I got to say that i like steel frames and i've owned a couple (columbus with internal routing cable, a timetrial with columbus horizontal dropouts and a giant with vertical dropouts). The thing is that recently I got the oportunity to buy a bianchi with campagnolo mirage in good shape. the painting of the frame is not original and i want to restore it to the original model. The frame only has bianchi name branded on the rear brake bridge and in the bottom bracket is only the serial number. It is lugged but doesn't have any B or the bianchi logo anywhere, also The dropout are vertical. I think that it might be from the early 90 but i dont really know. Thank so much for the help

I'm seeing something... I'm seeing something... I can't quite make it out!

Make sure to take a picture of the whole drive side (right side) showing the derailleurs and cranks, then close ups of the areas circled in the guide below.

Pictures and update in my research

Hi mates. Sorry for not posting pics. I found out that the frame might be a bianchi virata circa 1991. What makes me thing this is that the dropouts are vertical, the routing of the cables are external and acording to the bikepedia the virata model were made with bianchi superset 2 design meaning that the downtube takes an ovalized shape near to the bottom braket.

That describes a lot of '90s era Bianchis.

I don't recall the '91 Virata having Bianchis stamped on the brake bridge and BB shell.

Thanks for the reply Bianchigirl. The bike only has bianchi graved on the rear break bridge twice, not in the Bb
