We are currently walking the VF. We started in Ivrea on Sept 1. It has been nothing but a daily fight with mosquitoes so be prepared with lots of deet. You can buy spray in the pharmacy here but not all have deet. There is an equivalent they sell here that works quite well. Don’t waste your money on the citronella.

The good news is that nowadays there aren't mosquitoes any more. The temperature is decreasing, especially at night.
Last week I walked on the Via between Lamporo and Vercelli to refresh some signs and I saw that the rice paddies are now dry, so the mosquitoes can't spawn any more until June 2019. ;)
