There will be any high speed rail between Trieste and Venice in the future?

As far as I know, they're only planning to speed the line up to 200 km/h.
Our politicians have been discussing a new high speed line for a long time, with two different proposals, but I think they've finally set down for just an update of the existing line

From the German forum they have sent me here suggesting it was Milano Centrale. I have been there a month ago, and it didn't look like it.

Any suggestions if this photo could have been taken in Italy?

It's definitely Milan Central station
The picture is a bit misleading: the cover is made of iron and glass, so it's transparent and not white. If you visit it during the day, you can see the blue sky through

What does the white triangle with the black border mean in the signs? I see it quite often in the light signs along the track

You mean these:



?

If yes, they mean that the train must always be under 30km/h (or 60km/h) while approaching a exit switch.

This triangle may be used only in tracks from which the train can only start from zero km/h. For example, in stations.
