A curious system (adopted even in other countries, as I saw in a very old thread here on SSC) to shift rapidly the barriers which divide the two directions

Here used for a provisional barrier due to the works to enlarge a viaduct on A6 Torino Savona; the stretch is between Mondovė and Carrų and they shift the barriers to leave the direction with more traffic (e.g. the direction to Savona, to the sea, during w.e., the direction to Torino Sunday afternoon/evening) always with one more lane

That is what is called a 'Zipper' barrier. There are several such installations here in the USA, some of them semi-permanent. A few permanent ones that I know of are on the Tappan Zee bridge (I-87 over the Hudson River north of NYC), I-H1 west of the main airport (between I-H2 and I-H201) in Honolulu and along I-93 south of downtown Boston. There are a few other temporary construction zone 'Zippers' in the USA, too.

Imagine using that in the opposite way, reducing and not widening the road, what a mess

Yeah: when the new stretch of 'tangenziale' (u/c just a pic before) will be ready they will tear down this 'historical' monsterpiece... ehm... masterpiece of Italian Capital 'architecture'

Well, I guess it would be "bypass", as in a motorway bypassing a city. Then again, I'm not Italian so I might be wrong

They are like motorways, mostly free, that sorrounds the cities, they are a link between the urban roads and the motorways.

Dunno...I'm confused...

Tangenziale = tangent. Hehe, it may be funny, but that's it. They are like a tangent of a city/town. They are still motorways though, they just wanna tell you it's a bypass. Sth more about your country from me.

I wish I could find some pictures of the tunnel (or map) under Monte Mario (4km) and its intersections. Its one of the most impressive newer project in Rome (including GRA and increased capacity of Ro-Fiu for the purposes of the Nuova fiera di Roma to name some) which connects tangenziale est to the northern section of Rome including 4 underground intersections.

The "sopraelevata" triangle is the one you see from train, entering Termini station from Pescara or Napoli AV lines?

Aren't those the (in)famous viaducts where poor Fantozzi catched the bus "on the run"?
