Seriously ugly pair of forks. They will probably be fine for your bike, but I would recommend you look for something nicer.

Not sure how old your Bianchi frame is, but most Bianchi frames I have come across were sold with a unicrown steel fork. Planet X have these available really cheap.

Hmm, in that case I would try and find some Columbus unbranded forks off Ebay and not the ugly ones you referred to.

You can get Columbus forks with Campag ends on Ebay if you search and they might suit your bike better... like these:

One point to consider is the effect in the value of your bike if you don't use Bianchi branded forks

Not sure where it needs to ship to, but most sellers have no problem with international shipment. Just make sure you ask them in advance.
