Sunday and Saturday usually ZTL's are off, so you can enter the city by car. Some cities have a smaller, permanent ZTL where you can't enter at all.
In weekdays, ZTL's are monitored by cameras. Each city has a different period during the day when you cannot enter, for instance between 7.30 and 19.30. Turin's particular in this sense because that period is limited at 7.30-10.30.

It's A16 which goes to Naples, not A14...

It's true: but the first photo was taken in A14, the second on A14/A16 IC, and the latter on A16.

You're right... typo

BTW, why do some get called A and other E? it's confusing...

All the Italian motorways have an "A" denomination.
Some of them are concurrent with International E-road network, which gives them also an "E" denomination.

There are some A roads which do not have E denomination (A31, for instance) and some E roads which are not motorways and do not possess an A denomination (SS3bis, for instance).

One thing I hate of Italian motorways is this way of putting directional signs AFTER the road splits.
At least this one is big and high, sometimes it's just a regular small sign placed between the two branches...

Tell me how the hell can I choose here:

What's extremely funny is that if you look at 2011, just a few years ago, for the same junction...

Thank you.
There is a piece of news on Italian newspaper "La Stampa" regarding this.
https://www.lastampa.it/economia/201...ori-1.37503648
Italian authority Antitrust, which is responsible for fair trade regarding European companies, opened a file against Telepass because it requires an Italian bank account and this violates European rules ("IBAN discrimination").

Telepass replied stating that it's not true, and many customers activated an account using foreing bank accounts. Sometimes it's not possible because there is a procedure for owner identification that can go wrong: in this case, an alternate method called "Go By Telepass" can be activated, based on credit card.

When I tried using my UK IBAN, I didn't manage to get it. They specifically wanted an italian IBAN.

This was back in 2017 though.

Maybe you can by going physically to one of their offices.

Here's the signup page, I haven't gone through the whole process, but you can select a residence address from a dozen of EU countries or so.

Works are ongoing since May 2017 in Milan for the construction of dynamic 4th lane on the A4. When the dynamic lane is off, max speed will be 90 km/h. The dynamic lane, when on, will be limited to 70 km/h.
Deadline is 30 June 2021.

Are there any plans in Italy to build a motorway Brindisi-Taranto-A2 heading Reggio di Calabria?

Brindisi-Taranto is already covered by SS7, which is completely 2+2 superstrada (expressway).
Taranto-connection A2 in Sibari is covered by SS106, completely superstrada in that stretch as well.
Connection A2 -> Reggio: some stretches have been already replaced by superstrada, but I don't think it will ever be completely covered.

In short: no plans.

Thanks. This is what I wanted to know - travelling from Brindisi to Palermo all the way on 2x2 roads. Of course getting on A2 will be at the node Firmo Saracena Sibari. I was not sure if everything was built as 2x2 from Taranto to A2/ Firmo junction along the gulf of Taranto.
