Why is the speed limit on the NSA326 expressway 50 km/h?

That's because the expressway ends a few hundred meters ahead, if you follow that direction you'll see the road ending in a one-lane ramp.

A32, after confrontation with NIMBYs against the nearby Lyon-Torino high-speed rail link work site. 1 policeman in critical condition. 20 to 200 people (police + NIMBY thugs) injured. A sizable portion of those protesters are foreigners and known troublemakers from Spain and Germany, part of the same quasi-terrorist network that destroys property and threaten lives on IMF, Wolrd Bank and G8 summits Europe-wide.

I'm very puzzled. There are some other big projects going on in Italy (Messina Strait bridge, railway Brenner Base Tunnel, many other TAVs and new motorway works), and of course all of them have NIMBYsts protesting against. But none are so resilient, willing, and unfortunately I must say violent, like this particular one in Val di Susa. I cannot grasp the basic difference that sets this apart from the others.

The protesters have built a sort of wall using wood outside the motorway, because the plans are to built a temporary access road from there up to the worksite. Apparently it's the police to have decided to close both carriageways instead of just one.

Try Catalan in Alghero :http://maps.google.es/maps?ll=40.558...103.36,,2,0.73

Although is not the entrance sign, it's weird to see something written in Catalan outside Eastern Spain, Andorra or the French department of Pyrenees Orientales.

Anyway, Sardinian dialect is a true language with totally different idioms and words from Italian.
At an Italian mothertongue born outside of Sardinia this dialect sounds totally incomprehensible. Catalan, Spanish, or even French or Portuguese, are more comprehensible and similar to Italian... no kidding

By Aosta Valley charter, all towns in the region (except Aosta/Aoste) retain only the French version of the name. We didn't "forget" anything. It's the law.

Does that also mean that the Cervinia is no longer part of the official name of the village on the South side of Matterhorn / Cervin?

What's crazy is there are also Francophone municipalities with French names ouside of the Aoste Valley. For example the municipality of Usseaux (Frenchissim name) in the province of Turin, or the municipality of Pradlèves in the province of Cuneo.

Now I'd like to hear an Italian pronouncing Comune di Usseaux.

Breuil-Cervinia is the official name, but the place is not a comune. It is part of the comune of Valtournenche.

I think the pronounciation is the correct one. Some other places are not pronounced French-style, like Oulx, where I think in France the "x" would not be pronounced while in Italian it is.

A14 Bologna-Taranto.

Today 3rd lane on 21 km between Fano and Senigallia, only in northbound direction, opens. Works have been completed three months ahead of schedule. The investment of 353 M€ allowed also the widening of three viaducts (730m), destruction of 15 overpasses and reconstruction for 12, installation of 15 km of sound-proof panels and the traslation of Senigallia exit. 3rd lane on the other carriageway will open by the end of 2011.

I drove here just one week ago. It is an impressive motorway, which probably wouldn't be built today with all the viaducts.

However I was surprised with dangerous mergings on new A27/A28 interchange and yielding from the left (direction Belluno->Portogruaro). Although there is not a lot of traffic, it still should be done better.
