Typically, it would be the former but we've seen cases where careless Bianchi employees have reversed the sequence.

Bianchi S/N did not include model indicators. To determine the model and which of the two scenarios fits best, we'll need more information and preferably pictures. Start with a list of the components and a description of the Bianchi logo style.
Thank you for the info! Here are the photos. Came with Modolo Start brakes, Corsa brake levers. Rear derailleur was swapped out by someone with a Shimano 105, and I can't tell what the front deraileur is. Cranks and shift levers have Bianchi stamped on them. No 'Bianchi' stamped on top of the seat stays, and no 'B' stamped on the fork crowns.
