Both racing bicycles are well made, customizable in color, but the Bianchi Specialissima is made and cared for even better than the TREK Emonda SLR.
Minimal differences, but present.

Bianchi Specialissima 2023 VS Trek Emonda SLR 2023 Road Test Review Frame
Both frames are excellently made, but different.
The Trek Emonda SLR is all about lightness, a true climbing racing bike.
The Bianchi Specialissima, on the other hand, is an all-round racing bike, light but also stiff, excellent uphill, but also competitive on the flat.
Both frames offer great build quality and good choice of sizes and colors.
The Bianchi frame kit alone, has, to date, too high a price compared to the Trek Emonda SLR.
There isn't that much difference, neither in terms of performance nor in terms of build quality.
Bianchi Specialissima 2023 VS Trek Emonda SLR 2023 Road Test Assemblies Review
All assemblies for both racing bikes are valid.
Good choice of various assemblies, but as mentioned several times it is useless to buy a top-of-the-range frame and then assemble it with an entry level groupset.
Bianchi Specialissima assembled racing bikes are more affordable than the Trek Emonda SLR.
The quality is the same, even if the weights all benefit Trek which always weighs slightly less with the same assembly.
Trek is better for pure climbing, otherwise Bianchi is better as a multipurpose bike.
