Google Street Maps in Italy

So far, it’s not that exciting for me because it doesn’t cover "my" part of Italy (Milano, Firenze, Roma, and along the shores of Lake Como are covered so far, as well as some roads that the Tour de France went over last summer), but the Google street view guys are starting to cover Italy:

Found thanks to Brian Fitzpatrick, who, having lived in Rome, actually gets to point at ‘his’ places:

I think I’ve just found my new dream job: I want to be part of the team that drives around and does the street views in, say, beautiful hillside towns in central Italy, Umbria, Toscana, le Marche.  And… who knows if they’ll do it, but it would sure be cool to have "street" views for Venice – I’d almost pay to be a part of that!
