The third one, I'm not even sure what they are trying to say. I think it might be at a swimming pool, going by instruction 1.
The poster did explain that

Buongiorno. What's "PN" (An Italian province, I assume, but I don't know them.)

I'm wondering if that was actually put up by the owner of the house, who's occasionally had a drunk, or otherwise-distracted person, drive onto his yard.... Is that bit of red right above the sign a reflector?

When you drove from Trieste to Pordenone, you crossed the regional border 6 times, not 2. Check carefully the map near Latisana and Portogruaro.
However, those situations are fairly common in Italy: for example the A1, crosses the Emilia Romagna-Tuscany and Umbria-Lazio borders several times.

Now I'm seeing my Italian road maps and I discovered that on our way to Jesolo I entered Treviso province only for exit the A57! But if I continued to, lets say, Caorle, I would have crossed the TV/VE border up to 10 times!

Check the SR53 Portogruaro - Vicenza. It runs all the way in Veneto except some 500 meters in Friuli - Venezia Giulia. There are no signs.
http://maps.google.it/maps?hl=it&sug...-8&sa=N&tab=wl
The SR53 doesn't appear in the list of Friuli - Venezia Giulia's roads and provably even this short section is managed by Veneto (it's a regional road).

i doubt that Google Maps are right regarding the border bear A4's bridge over Tagliamento. the other one near A28 seems to be logical (follows edges of fields or some channels).

this on A1 - as far as i remember, those borders between Lazio and Umbria are even signed each time. it was kinda confusing. (i was also confused wha we had to cross over Tevere 9 times between Orvieto and Roma

Google maps is accurate in this case: Tagliamento doesn't always match with regional border because its flow changed during centuries.
Check near the village of Marinella, just north of Bibione: there are 3 or 4 homes in Friuli accessible by road only from Veneto because they're in the other side of the river.
Although unrelated with Tagliamento, you should check also Suzzolins and Mussons, two villages split in two by the regional border (in some places one side of a street is in a region and the other in in the other!). And, also in this case, no google mistakes, just weird reality.

By the way such discriminatory signs existed in South Africa until early 90s:

The sign is due to religious reasons which all muslims agree on, for once, not the craziness of ME govt.
Makkah is an exceptional city, more holy to muslims than the vatican is for catholics, and it is very explicit in the Islamic tradition that Makkah is only for muslims. If you are curious why I'm sure you can look further into it.
But there are defined city limits and that is the only place I am aware of where only muslims are allowed in.
However, I have heard of christian monasteries in Ethiopia where no women are allowed

As for how to determine religion, I think many countries' passports state religion. If your country's passport doesn't, you require extra papers.

Also Medina, another holy city in Saudi Arabia.

Also in Mount Athos (Greece) that is quite incredible since is in a democratic EU country. But maybe it is a private land and their owners (monks) have the right to decide who is welcomed here and who not. But not allowing non Muslims entering the whole urban area (and not just only holy sites) is just crazy fondamentalism and pure discrimination, at least for open-minded western people.
Are there border point while entering Saudi holy cities?

Mount Athos seems to be allowed for women anyway:


As I understand the last sentence correctly, naked women are allowed
