Bologna-Florence is an old motorway. It's funny to see sharp curves on a 6-lane motorway.

It is being reconstructed... These new ~20 six-laned kms do not have sharp curves... there are many tunnels (quite wide and impressive) there.

Those light look fancy, however motorway there is horrible.
no, i didn't mean those. i remember small lights which were set quite dense, app. each 20 meters i'd say. they were double, so each light was actually 2 lights one upon the other

Correct...well better, they are building a NEW highway ON TOP (not phisically of course) of the existing one...

At the end between Florence and Bologna there will be two 4+2 highways, one old and one new.

Actually a few km before and after will be 6+2, they are basically the new ones you can see in the pictures above.

Are there other places in the world with 2 overlapping highways?

From what I remember driving there there are few real distance signs.
The next big city is often signed in the middle on the small signs.
But real distance signs with multiple cities on the right side I've seen few.
Sometimes far away cities like Lyon between Milan and Turin or Paris and Marseille between Genoa and the french border, but those cities are only signed once.
I see them now in most highways in north italy, not that they are that useful anyway

I have heard the inverse, that trucks transporting dangerous goods will be obliged to sue the old motorway because of the long (8,5 km) tunnel of the new road.

Sounds plausible. That's also the downside of long tunnels in urban areas with no good alternatives... It means hazmats have to travel across the surface streets in urban areas. That's not really safe either.

I thought something similar, but even thought that old stretch has many tunnels as well (even if less and shorter) and their standars are not high in case of accident.

They may upgrade the old tunnel. Maybe after another accident like the one in Viareggio...

Hopefully they'll build the Reggio Emilia's HSL railway station too nearby that segment of A1!
