Maybe this is more a thing of the past, I never had difficulties booking differently in August. For instance, I booked a hotel in Val di Fassa from Thursday 15 to Sunday 18 August.

Yesterday, driving from Montichiari to Brescia, I stumbled upon one of the most confusing signs I ever saw:

Obviously I took the wrong exit...

It's an industrial/commercial zone within the territory of Montichiari.

Not really. It's A21 racc that ends there, not A21.

However, studying the road I undestood that:
- going on the first lane you end up in a roundabout were you can go in several direction (A21 racc, local road to Castenedolo, or to Brescia);
- going on the second or third lane is the same: they merge few meters beyond and go towards Brescia
- going on the fourth lane you go to Fascia d'Oro.

So basically, first, second or third lane, you can still go to Brescia

According to presidents of regions Marche and Umbria, works for the construction of second carriageway on the SS 76 in the framework of Project Quadrilatero, which stopped last 16th March due to financial difficulties of contractor Impresa SpA, are going to resume next October. The project itself is fully funded, so Impresa SpA is just going to receive funds in advance to resolve its internal problems.

SS 76 is a class B road (dual carriageway, 110 km/h) running from SS 16 in Falconara Marittima (10 km from Ancona) to the Umbrian border. It is divided into two stretches (Falconara - Serra San Quirico, built in the 70s) and Albacina-Cancelli di Fabriano (built in the 90s). Single carriageway stretches involved in the works are the 12-km Serra San Quirico - Albacina (through the narrow Della Rossa gorge, featuring a single tube 3+ km tunnel) and the 8.5-km Cancelli-Fossato di Vico (through the main Apennines chain, featuring a single tube 2+ km tunnel).

It was a little ruder than the current one, so I'd prefer not to.
But you can still tell us your story

Ok, well, I was on my way from England to Salerno and I decided to stay in a motel for the night - as you do in southern Italy instead of sleeping in a van. And I found one at the Autogrill services . Parked the van up and went inside and I got my room. Went back to the van to get my bag and laptop and this guy in a suit approached me. Showed me a Polizia Stradale badge, and said that an English reg van had been spotted on the motorway waving his gun around. Wasn't me of course, I only do that on Skyscrapercity. Then he asked me if I've got some counterfeit US dollars, and he wanted to check my wallet. First I asked him to see that badge again. He showed me, had a quick look in my wallet, shaked my hand and then buggered off. Later when eating at the restaurant I found I had 200 euros missing...

Those people are really tricksters. A friend of my dad's, more than 20 years ago, was tricked in a similar way in a rest area. A foreigner, barely speaking Italian, approached asking to see some Italian lire because he thought he was given some fake ones as change and wanted to see the difference. Net result: some 200.000 lire (100 euro) missing from the wallet...

In the framework of the enlargement of A4 between Quarto d'Altino and San Donà di Piave, east of Venice, yesterday the old bridge on river Piave has been demolished with 320 explosive charges.

Here's the photogallery of the event:

How is the traffic affected by this works? I'm asking this because I will drive there next week.

Also, are there any restrictions on Raccordo Villesse - Gorizia? I see on Google Maps traffic that it might be closed on a section.

It's not. The new bridge was opened between June and July, and all traffic goes there, still 2x2 for the time being but on a single carriageway. The second bridge still has to be built, starting next fall.

A34:
Open 1+1 in both directions all the way.
You cannot exit at Gradisca it you come from Gorizia.

Raccordo Villesse - Gorizia is A34? I tought it's RA17 or

And is it 1+1 the entire way? I'm asking because I see on Google Street View that it's also 2+2 on some sections.

I don't want to take any exit from it... just drive from Gorizia to the A4.
