All autostrade in or into Liguria are interesting. Can't think of any single dull sector.

I also drove on A7 once (driving from Milano to Genova some 20 years ago). We needed like 5 minutes to overtake someone.

I did. It is curvy, but in my opinion not as scary as A7 (or the north part of A15).

I drove the A15 at night, at around 1am, to La Spezia 3 weeks ago, but since I was almost the only car around, I could use the whole road for myself. Otherwise it would have been a very sporty ride. On the return trip northbound I didn't feel it to be that hard to drive.

The A6 is curvy only the Southbound stretch, from Ceva to Savona; the Northbound stretch from Savona to Ceva is newer and less curvy than Southbound stretch.
The remaining stretch is a normal Highway.

Actually there is something similar in Milan, called Cavalcavia Monte Ceneri

Hi,
What is the right name of this road?

Cavalcavia Monte Ceneri
or
Cavalcavia Renato Serra - Monte Ceneri

(This is the subject of my next video)

Thank you!

If they completed a small sector and built an overpass, this would be it

It wouldn't be a roundabout either, as the ring is bi-directional.
The biggest roundabout in Italy is probably this one near Bari:
https://www.google.it/maps/place/Bar...018af2c9966bfb
Diameter is around 600 meters.

As you may consider that road as a "roundabout" then you have to deal with the fact that A90 (GRA) is much more bigger, and it's complete.
A90 the ultimative roundabout!
