Italian drivers are following traffic rules and obeying traffic lights, and not making a chaos? Please tell us!

No, that's not the point. The point is what they are told to do: look at the van and the motorist in the first snapshot and were they are in the second. And then observe the dark Fiat "Panda" in the third, and were it is in the fourth.

Follow the direction taken by the google-car and look back.

The Google Streetview imaginery is a composition of zillion images, and it is not always sorted in a chronological order. Especially in complex junctions, the camera car must make several passes in various directions, and the adjacent scenes at the crossing areas may be results from different passes.

Not in this case, it's clearly the sequence of pictures the google car took going left.
The concern is this:
in the first frame you can see the google car waiting for "green" on the "turning left" lane. The motorist coming from the right is clearly standing still (foot on the floor). Through the door of "Farmacia Monticelli" in the corner, You may also recognize a white van.
In the second frame the google car is moving having his own light showing "green", but the motorist of the first frame is just over the intersection and the white van is even still in it. That means: a couple of seconds before their light was also "green", a "green" phase of just a couple of seconds and now "red" again? No!
The third frame, turning the view towards the road on the right, You can see a dark Panda approaching the holding line. Looking back You can see the Smart following the google car.
Now, in the fourth frame, You can see both cars, the Panda and the Smart, passing on the intersection.
The whole sequence is a matter of seconds away from the moment the motorist and the van were allowed to proceed, and the Panda also. In the meantime also the google car and the Smart got the same allowance. And this is the point: all vehicles were allowed with "green light" to cross the section, cars turning left and cars coming from the right going straight, with a clear risk of collision.
And it's not a malfunctioning traffic light, is an interpretation (misguided IMHO) of our road codex which apparently allows this situation: cars turning shall "give way" to those coming from the right even if they have a clear sing of "free way".
And it's not a single situation, not in Genoa, according to witnesses.
I never though this could be real! It's foolish, even criminal, but real.

And how do you know that one of them is not running through a red light?

Eye witness ensured to me that it is so. And going through red light is not a common habit at this latitudes. I was also disconcerted, but observing the sequence many times, it's quite plausible that what has been told is real.

Seems rather energy wasteful to use LED median signs like posted above in Bueno aires. Whats the reasoning behind it?

What does it mean? "Attention, pedestrian have right-of-way"?
