Hi, Bianchi Does sell Celeste touch up paint from thier website. In
fact, this is the only color they sell. Can't remember the URl, but
it's probably www.bianchi.com Mark

I took my Bianchi to my local automotive paint store who were able to do a
custom match. Didn't cost all that much.

But they have also changed the exact shade several times in the past (or
maybe it's just duff quality control)...

The paint used on the interior of swimming pools is a close match.

Is that a for a recent/current Nuovo Celeste Bianchi? You
can just buy a small bottle of touchup an any Bianchi dealer
or get Bianchi's exceptional 2-can spray paint kit ( green
base with pearl blue clear topcoat).

If it's older, the color has been greener (80s), greyer
(60s),bluer (70s) over time at various Bianchi factories.
