After this improvement I don't think there will be new sections for quite a long time

I have mixed feelings about elevated highways. It's cool to drive on them and they look cool from afar, but they ruin places they run through. Just look at the Genova sopraelevata; as soon as it ends in the east, Genova becomes much nicer.

Road accidents in 2010
mystery about the number of fatalities

Deaths in 2010 could be 4700 and not 4000. The discovery was made by Lorenzo Guarneri Association: in the provinces of Florence and Forlì-Cesena were found proof of errors. What about the rest of Italy?

The proof was discovered by Stefano Guarnieri, father of Lorenzo who was killed in 2010 by a moped driver under the influence. Stefano discovered that according to ISTAT (National Institute of Statistics and Demographics), Lorenzo was unharmed by the accident, which instead killed him instantly. After the shocking discovery, Stefano Guarnieri carried out a thorough investigation and found many other discrepancies.
Full story - in Italian - here:

The lack of reporting traffic fatalities into the official statistics is a problem in every country. The Dutch scientists estimate the numbers in the Netherlands are likely 10% off.

I figured that as well. But Italian figures are more like 15%, which is too much.

We have also Cona, in Veneto (p*ssy in Portoguese) and Pula, in Sardinia (c*ck in Rumanian).

Besides, I think this is the 10th time those names are mentioned on SSC.

Green light yesterday for lot II.6 of A33, 9 km between La Morra and Verduno. First 4 km in tunnels, then 5 km out in the open in river Tanaro valley. Works are due to start in few weeks.

What's the status of lot II.5? Has that already been approved? Or is it expected that the construction time will be much shorter so that it will be completed at the same time as II.6? Looking at the map, it appears to me that, without completing lot II.5, the A33 will end up just in the middle of nowhere.

Lot II.5 is not necessary at all, as there is already a 4-lane Alba bypass, which will be refurbished together with lot II.6 works. Once lot II.6 will be open to traffic, there will be a complete 4-lane route between A6 (Marene) and A21 (Asti).

Lot II.5 includes a controversial tunnel under Tanaro River, deemed too expensive a solution by many. It has been scrapped and nobody knows if it'll be ever built in future.

I have a question:
Stelvio Pass- Cortina D'Ampezzo - Kranjska Gora ( Slovenia ).
Which route is the best? Again: scenic/time. Any tips/advices would help.
