Italian drivers are a special breed. If you can drive there, you can drive anywhere,,, with the possible exception of India. In Italy they don't follow the lines on the road. They don't look at the markings as some boundaries they need to follow. The Italian drivers don't even look at the markings as guidelines. They simply look at lane-markers and road signs as road decorations, there only for the simple purpose of breaking up the monotony of the road and confuse foreigners.
For Italian drivers the purpose of 2 clearly marked lanes on the roads surface is to have 3 rows of cars in those 2 lanes, and scooters weaving in and out of the rows. The purpose of 3 clearly marked lanes on the roads surface is to have 2 rows of cars in those 3 lanes, and of course 2 lines of cars parked in the outside of the outside lanes. Of course they also have scooters weaving in and out of the 2 rows of cars.
