Ventoso (RSM) signed in Italy.

Signs other than "San Marino" or "Rep. San Marino" are, of course, only found right next to the border ....

I-5 North has Vancouver as a control city north of Seattle.

The sign says Vancouver BC though, because there is a Vancouver in Washington close to Portland.

Chiesanouva (RSM) signposted in Italy, close to the border.

No oval, so only those familiar with local geography will know it's actually in another country.

Road sign on an access road to the new A60 Varese bypass, scheduled to open next January.
Valichi means "border crossings". Not a clear way to signal a border crossing, though. Non-Italian drivers won't understand it.

I thought "Valichi" was a Swiss town. Somewhat reminds me of this sign in Slovenia. "MMP Gruškovje" stands for "mednarodni mejni prehod Gruškovje", meaning "international border checkpoint Gruškovje" (with Croatia).

Is that "CH Valichi" on a brown panel?

And if so, why?

because valico (pl. valichi) means mountain pass in italian, so it's something like the signs for mare or spiagge that indicate ways to reach the sea coast or beaches

In my hometown Tijuana, Mexico. there're several of them,
Indicating the interstates I-5 and I-805, and the local 905 freeway.

As well in San Diego there are for Tijuana and farther the city of Ensenada,
but can't find the exact location of the signs in google maps.

There are no mountain passes between Italy and Switzerland near Varese, since Canton Ticino is in the same watershed of Italy.
In this case it means "valichi di frontiera" (border crossings), like "Valico di Fernetti".

So Warsaw over road DK61, but Prague over road DK8/E67.

That's not that unusual in former YU countries. In BiH e.g., there's GP Izačić signed on M5 around Bihac. GP means Granični prijelaz = border crossing.
