Unusual engraved Bianchi fork, 70s?

I recently viewed an old Bianchi which I think is probably from the 70s. Frame number is 2D12154, dropouts are Gipiemme and it has unusual fork-top engravings: an ‘S’ with arrowheads and 2 parallel lines. It also has a B in a circle engraved on the top of each seatstay. Rear derailleur is Nuovo Gran Sport, shifters are Campagnolo and crankset is Stronglight but I guess components could have changed over the years.
it has been ‘enthusiastically’ repainted at some point but really needs doing again.
Does anyone have an idea of what the bike might be or recognise the fork engraving? It has been suggested that it is a ‘Specialissima’ but I don’t know if that is accurate. Any thoughts anyone?
