The Scanuppia (a.k.a. Malga Palazzo). It doesn't quite reach a 45% grade, though. Its only rival is the Nebelhorn in Oberstdorf, Germany. Among its extreme grades it has a 200 m section steeper than 33% which ends at a 42% ramp.

Apparently 50 % is just the steepest point, though, in one of the hairpins. It might be more informative to give the average steepness as well.

It goes everywhere. But the strange was the additional sign who is not usually posted when the main road goes straight.

That. The give-way sign isn't strange, the bottom one is.

So what is the legal meaning of the square bicycle sign? "Bicycles allowed"?

No, it marks a bicycle connection (on a road obviously). It misses the number and it could be placed a few meters after the upper sign, not in the same level.
