You mean A13, A14 doesn't cross the Po.

I consider the "Autostrada Adriatica" E45 from Bologna (boo) to Cesena, then E55 to Bari and finally E843 to near Massafra

And I didn't knew that! Anyway, the Po is the longest river within Italy. Much like Ebro and Tagus, the former is the longest river within Spain, but the later is the longest Spanish river.

Nope, I'm Spanish. But I decided to use E-numbers where possible. I say E07 instead of A-23 and N-330, or E11 instead of A71 and A75, but now I find I have to say E45, E55 and E843 instead of A14 . And in the UK I have to write the national number alongside the European, like E13/M1, because E-numbers aren't signposted! British...

As long as you're aware that a lot of E-routes are barmy routes, and in a lot of countries you will get to your destination a lot faster by following national route numbers.

I must admit I had to search for the definition of "barmy"

It's also a problem of communication: try asking anyone directions for the E843...

I know the E55 only because it's a great route for a travel; in Italy the only E-road vaguely recognized by travellers is the E45, only because it is a route of national importance not classifed as a motorway.

And because it's national number is an illogic SS 3 bis (a branch-style number for a main road)

Lol, some little kid mistook me for his father today and sat on my lap (I was like 'wtf'). By the time he realized he made a mistake, we started laughing. Poor kid ran to his (real) father and was totally embarrassed, so I had to tell him it happens.

It did look odd. His father told him 'look better next time you decide to climb on someone'.

Some 60 years ago, when almost any car in Italy was this one:


my grandfather entered what was supposed to be his boss' Topolino, sat on the passenger seat and began talking about stuff, until the owner of the car asked him if he was sure about what he was doing
