Apulia has a good motorway/expressway system. Its territory is the least mountainous in Italy, but in some parts of the region there is simply no maintenance. You also have to consider that Apulia has a "continentalized" mediterranean climate (really hot summers and quite cold, snowy winters): that's the reason why the road surface tends to deteriorate quite quickly.

Snowy winters without mountains?

Why there isn't maintenance in Salento? SS613 is deteriorate and SS101 is in worst conditions!

Snow is very common in Apulia. Here you can see Alberobello last winter:

Apulia does seem to get a high share of severe weather, ranging from snow to severe hail to extreme heat. Just today I've read about a massive amount of hail in the Bari area.

The last highway opened in Sicily - toll-free and managed by Anas - highway Catania-Siracusa, is no so bad:

Major problem with ANAS is not construction as much as it is maintenance.

Remember that same highway, a little further south, was partially closed few years after opening, south of Siracusa, because the pavement on northbound lands was subsiding fast, due to lax supervision of contracted works

Unfortunately, you know: Sicily's problems are an extreme version of Italy's: corruption, organized crime, limited size of road maintenance...

I used to live in Apulia, I know what I'm saying. Apulia, facing the Balkans, is often exposed to cold air intrusions from eastern Europe. That's the same for Greece, former Yugoslavia and Turkey: have you ever heard of the Adriatic Sea/Black Sea-Effect Snow? Sorry, ignorance in spades here!
I know it's not like north of Europe, it would be the last straw!

200 m of riverside street in Florence collapsed this morning at 6:30, very close to Ponte Vecchio. 20 parked cars are involved. The collapse was caused by a water pipe rupturing underneath the road:

Sauris is a linguistic exclave where a sort of German (Bavarian) dialect is spoken. Other Germanic linguistic exclaves in the area are Sappada and Timau.

It was indeed. 70 cm in diameter, one of the main collectors of the city. It was put there in 1966,after the great flood, and never checked since then.

50 years without any inspections ? I think after that water pipe rupturing there will be more underground inspections.

Superstrada SS 77, part of project Quadrilatero in central Italy, is going to open next summer. This is a video made by local newspaper Umbria24, driving from Colfiorito (current end of SS 77) towards Foligno:
