Not many. A count is difficult, I remember some stretches on SS640 in Sicily, SS106 in Calabria, maybe something in Sardinia and Tuscany.

From this thread:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1464920

2013 openings

Expressways
SS106 Squillace - Borgia 5km
SS106 Paulizzi - Caulonia 10,5km
SS640 Vecchia Dama - Aquilata 4,6km

Motorways
A31 Longare - Albettone 8km
A34 Villesse - Gorizia 17km

Not that much, hopefully 2014 will be a better year from this point of view.

Indeed, specially since A34 Villesse - Gorizia 17km it's not actually new but just an upgrade of an existing motorway...

No, it was a strada extraurbana secondaria upgraded to a motorway. It means that the motorway network increased of 17km.

I don't think this is complete. For instance, 3.6 km of SS106dir between Variante di Palagiano and SS106 (Taranto) is missing. I'm working on a more complete list.

So it was nearly a motorway - it isn't a new road like A31.

I find that the presence of a great number of 1+1 highways is something peculiar to Italy

In general we have a good network of these roads, which fit well with our orography and the traffic of many areas they pass through

I don't like them. Most drivers overtake dangerously even when it's not allowed.

Or part of the Pedemontana Lombarda that will be built upgrading the SP35 Milano-Meda.

No, but I was a bus passenger on that motorway back in 2007. Unfortunately I don't have any own pictures from that trip

8,28% A24/A25? Again? 143km from Roma Est to Teramo already costs 17€, the same amount for 275km on A1. What more do they want?
