Wow, the roll-out is happening quite fast! When will Ireland get it :P (As if it will EVER happen)

On an unrelated note, i have found 3 eyelashes on my keyboard in the last ten minutes. Is it normal for your eyelashes to fall out that much?

What I regret mosy is that they mapped Milan first instead of Torino the first Capital of Italy that foreign people saw and appreciated so much during last Olympic Winter Games

Is normal they mapped first Milan... Milan is the economical capital of Italy... the second biggest city after Rome (also mapped)

A Google car was on Mestre (near Venice) on first days of september, so probably we will see more soon.

I'm curious about how they plan to map Venice ;-)

Having the Street View in Italy is fantastic!!
Be captured and immortalized on it is unspeakable!!
Me and my friends:

Now enjoy a trip on the Eternal City of ROME!
Thanks a lot Google!

In Francesco's group of people, two of the people were missed by the face-blurring algorithm. (Zoom in to see what I mean).

[put at-character here]Roger, it's correct. They alway blurr faces about those (in foreground) that may be identifiable.

[put at-character here]Gabriele: The first photo of Google cameras on a boat mapping Venice will be really cool! ;)
