No 150 kph
That's very disappointing. After years of debate, controversy and political promises, the issue of raising all 4 lane motorways speed limits to 150 kph has been turned down.

Italy has some of the best roads in Europe, and add to that some of the most powerful and fastest cars and motorcycles in the world, but after long debates, the speed limit of 130 kph stands (and in rain it's 110).

So now the only place you can run your motorcycle at top speed legally is Germany (and there, less and less Autobahns are allowing unrestricted speeds).

However, if I read the Italian news clipping correctly, if an Autostrada operator can show that based on design, layout, traffic intensity and accident data over the last 5 years, that it is safe to raise the speed limit, they are able to do so. In other words, they'll leave it to the private motorway operators. So it would seem, a typical political move. You decide, and if it goes wrong, you're to blame... In the mean time, when a politician moves around, they have no speed limits, and will go at the speed of sound...
