No, this is not Fausto Coppi bike!!

this is just the same model used by il Campionissimo in 1954, and Bianchi called this model "Campione del Mondo" in the honor of Fausto's world champion victory in Lugano in 1953.
I put on the Fausto Coppi picture just for the guys who do not know about italian bicycle history.
