Vintage Bianchi - What Do I Have?

Hello there!

So. I've gotten back into biking this last year, and early on the boyfriend stumbled across an old Bianchi. Nabbing it on sight, knowing it at the very least by name, we kept it around. I rode it for a bit, loved it, but as it turns out this just isn't the bike for me. It's time for it to move on to someone who'll appreciate it properly.

And so I come here. In short, I've no idea what year it might've been made (mid-90s?), the actual proper model name, or what price range I should be looking at to sell it. And so I come to you folks. The details and a good deal of photographs are contained below: any information ANYONE can provide me would be so much help!

It rides, shifts, everything - just fine. The only known mechanical issue is that the headset bearings need to be re-greased.

Please, feel free to ask any questions you may have. Thank you all in advance.

It IS the original Celeste Green. I do have plenty more pictures - just ask if they're needed!

I will let the Bianchi experts weigh in but I am guessing its a made in Japan or taiwan frame-set, regardless you have a nice lugged steel frame from a famous maker with a solid components and in classic Celeste ride and smile.

You might file through these to look for a match https://2velo.com/bianchi-bicycle-catalog-90s/

Head tube transfer reads "MADE IN ITALY."

Fittings appear to be 100% Italian.

They started specifying the Mexico rims on the CdI in 1996 but the Mirage Ergo levers changed for 1997 and this is the earlier version, so I'd say 1996.
