Thank you, this works

It's a huge project, that seems to be progressing quite fast. There is nothing of this project on 2011-2012 Google Earth imagery.

Works officially started on 11 June 2012. They're indeed progressing fast, since without at least the 7.5 km "Arco TEEM", A35 would end into the fields But the other lots are also progressing rapidly. Deadline for the whole structure is May 2015.

On another subject, works for the enlargment of A14 between Senigallia and Ancona nord, which were stopped last April due to financial difficulties of its contractor - SAMAC consortium - are going to resume next October. Banks approved SAMAC financial plan and are going to fund it for the rest of the works.

This is one of the two lots still open, the other being Ancona nord - Ancona sud which is due to open in 2016.

brick, "gallery" means another thing in English. You should correct and write "tunnel".

I already thought it didn't look like a museum. Though an "art" is Dutch civil engineering terminology for a tunnel, bridge, culvert, overpass, etc (anything where a road or railroad crosses an "artificial" structure, i.e. not an embankment).

There are many false friends between English and Italian. Galleria means both tunnel and gallery. Tunnel is also used in Italian.

I think "opera d'arte" (work of art) is used in Italian also to refer to those things.

Longest one should be Viadotto Coltano, on Autostrada A12: 9,6 km.
https://www.google.it/maps?q=coltano...12,282.42,,0,0

Tallest one is Viadotto Italia, on Autostrada A3: 259 m from the bottom of the valley.

There is a very interesting sector on highway A19, with some long viaducts crossing over a floodplain: http://goo.gl/maps/FhR25

The reason that highway was built in that costly way had already been discussed in this thread.

Seeing this infography, what is in your opinion the most necessary motorways to ended in Italy?

I see in this map that there are some stretches unfinished.



- A12 between Cecina and Civitavecchia.
- A24 and A25 in the Adriatic Coast.
- A motorway between Firenze and Adriatic Coast.

Is previsted to build in the next years new motorways (not extend the actual motorways) in Italy?

A25 officially ends in A14, that map is not perfect. And A24 ends is SS80dir, an expressway between A24 and A14 (speed limit of 110kmh).

So, A25 is finished, and A24 too, except for the fact that the last part is not classified as "highway".
