If yes, from where? Or can one buy one while being in Italy?

Temporary road signs on A4 near Milan, pointing to parking lots for EXPO 2015.

This is a picture of a viaduct regularly open for traffic, on the SS 652 "Fondovalle Sangro", in the center of Italy.

Careful: not for the faint of heart.

Road managed by ANAS. Coincidence? I don't think so.

That looks really troublesome. I think such a condition would require an immediate road closure in most countries.

Amatorial video of A29 Palermo - Mazara del Vallo (opened in 1978, managed by ANAS), showing concrete pillars that are falling part.
The video is from 2009 and the motorway is still standing and open. However, those damages aren't a good sign. Constructors probably wanted to save money by using cheaper materials.
Damages here are more superficial than on SS652, though.

By all known construction rules, this is a collapsed pillar and road closure is a must.

It rather looks like that the pillar base was offset by the pressure of wooden debris that was brought on the river.

And the next pillar in the background doesn't look very healthy too.

I don't think so. The epicenter is really far away.

I was looking on the weather forecast for next weekend, and from the places not farther then 3-4 hours from me, the area Bolzano-Merano seems to have the best prognosis.

Can you tell me at what elevation is SS44 between Merano and Vipiteno (Sterzing)? Drivable with summer tires in middle May?
I was thinking to visit Bolzano on Saturday and return on Sunday via Merano and SS44.

Jaufenpass (Passo di Monte Giovo) is the highest place in that road at ~2100 m, so it's not very high, but the weather there is kinda harsh... I was caught there once by a snowstorm at the beginning of June...

Dunno if it was already discussed here but... Why the hell does the eastern Milano bypass A58 end south of Melegnano instead of north of Melegnana as a continuation of the A50 western bypass? It would form a real beltway. There's a displacement by about 6km: map.
