I drove it in its entirety only once, but I doubt it is used to avoid A22. It takes twice the time.
Some pictures of the section Trento - Ora:







The SS12 might be the option however not for any longer route like Verona-Brennero etc.

Western bypass of Gubbio (SS 219) just opened today. Eastern bypass (Gubbio-Branca) opened in 2005.
It's a 1+1 fully grade-separated road:

It was about time!

For some months I'd drive somehow routinely (once every two weeks) between a village near Fabriano and Città d Castello. SS 219 was always bothersome near Gubbio.

Autostrada A34, the upgraded RA17, is basically complete. Only minor works are to be finished (lighting and similar). It's still limited to 1 lane per direction, though, by means of traffic cones, but drivers began to get tired (it's been a couple of months now) and use the closed lane anyway.
According to Autovie Venete, A34 will be opened in November.

I drove there last Friday. Kind of frustrating on one lane with 60 km/h limitation. Of course drivers don't respect that, the same on the A4 in lavoro zones

I ended up driving 90 and was still overtaken on a small tight not to be driven strip on the left side of the road (the right lane was closed, I was driving on the left one).

Overall my Italian experience was ok though. If not for the lane hogging on 3 lanes it would be great Some did the same also on the left lane of only 2 lane road, I found out raising the arm makes them make way though (funny, in Switzerland too)

One funny situation, on A4, on 3 lanes, driving in the middle lane, motorway almost empty, a hogger in front of me, was already thinking to overtake on 3rd, when he moved right, I passed from the 2nd and was thinking, look, he got it how to drive, then he moved again in the middle, although we were the only 2 cars around...

In one half of Project Quadrilatero (building two parallel expressways in Marche, from the coast towards Umbria) works are progressing fast. Part of SS 77 (between Bavareto and Colfiorito) will be opened next summer. Some pics of the works:

It is curious that, as is often the case in Italy, official documents are written on a computer, printed, sent by mail to another public/semi-public office or company, scanned, and put on the internet, instead of being transmitted directly in an electronical form
