Basically having ANAS as your road operator is worse than a private concessionaire. A publically owned concessionaire (think motorways on Sicily) sits somewhere in between. But among ANAS-operated roads you see differences too. That's not only between roads that had a relatively recent upgrade and roads that did not, but it is also easy to identify regional differences. And as much as I had loved it to be different, roads further South and on Sardegna do appear worse.

Not that the South is necessarily to blame, by the way. It probably starts as a funding issue, itself driven by lower population and much less of a transit role crucial for the country's economy. And from there, it's gone from bad to worse with the wrong constructors being hired for reasons well known and with results well known.

Autovie Venete reports of a traffic jam of 18 km on A23 Udine-Palmanova and 6 km on A4 before the Trieste-Lisert toll station.

It's the sheer consequence of the closing of Slovenian A2 between villach and Lubiana which occurred today

It was probably even more than 6 km before Trieste. I don't know where all those 24 km disappeared, because it wasn't particularly congested in Slovenia around Trieste.

We need to wait several years to see whether new constructions are good or not. And of course even good works deteriorate rapidly without proper maintenance.
Another problem is the central government, that scrapped plans for important highways like A3 and SS106.
Yes, of course.

A18 Siracusa-Gela

Stretch from Cassibile to Siracusa recently upgraded

Nice, I was there in 2009 and I remember that that stretch was in horrible conditions. Now it appears as good as the more recent Catania-Augusta motorway.

A cargo airplane from DHL has crash-landed nearby Milan Bergamo airport. It has left the runway and stopped onto a nearby road:

Nobody was hurt, neither the pilots, nor anyone on the road (it was 4 am so the roads were almost empty).

It appears to have blocked the SS 342 which is a four-lane divided highway. It would have crossed 4 separate roadways before coming to a stop, the airport private road, SP 116 and both carriageways of SS 342.

The road interested was SS 591 bis. SS 342 is way closer to the center of Bergamo.

I see, Google Earth also labels SS 591 bis as SS 342.

Google makes much more mistakes with mapping than most people think. Routes are frequently mislabeled, and the route planning often takes people on 'roads' not suited for driving with a regular car, bus or semi truck.

Not really. Map providers don't take into account that some roads in Italian towns can be too narrow for normal cars to get through. Just a week ago Sygic navigation took me twice through the road in Sorrento, which had just 1,60 m width. Luckily I could still turn around early enough not to stuck somewhere. And as I see on GM and OSM, both roads also don't show to normal user as impassable for normal cars.

Yes, there is a ferry between Otranto and Valona. Beside this, Otranto is a major touristic destination.

Works for the direct connection A35-A4 near Brescia are going to begin after the summer. Tender was awarded to a joint venture Pizzarrotti-Itinera for 50 M€, and are going to last 10-11 months.
