Autostrada A2, otherwise known as the Autostrada del Mediterraneo ("Mediterranean Motorway") or Salerno–Reggio Calabria, is a 432-km-long, Italian motorway in the south of Italy. Running between the towns of Fisciano, in the Province of Salerno, and Villa San Giovanni, in the Province of Reggio Calabria, the motorway forms part of European roads E45 and E841.
The A2 was created in 2017 by merging the Fisciano to Salerno section of the spur route RA 2 (part of European route E841) with the Salerno to Villa San Giovanni section of the A3 motorway (part of E45).
The provincial capital cities served by the A2 motorway are:
- Potenza, which is accessible from Sicignano junction through RA5;
- Catanzaro, which is accessible from Lamezia Terme junction through SS280;
- Vibo Valentia;
- Reggio Calabria.
The A2 has two spurs; both of them were until 2017 part of the A3 motorway:
- A2 diramazione Napoli (2.335 km) connects the A2 at the Salerno-Fratte junction with the present A3 at the Salerno centro junction and is part of European route E45;
- A2 diramazione Reggio Calabria (9.048 km) is a prolongation of the A2 from its southern terminus at Villa San Giovanni to the city of Reggio Calabria and is part of European route E90.
