Aa someone of you already mentioned in the past inside the forum, I have official information about the minumum width of the sled tracks in Italy starting from 01 Jan 2023.
Last weekend I was in Val di fiemme and drinking a beer with my friend and neighborn that works for SIT Bellamonte, the company that manages Bellamonte side of Alpe Lusia ski resort (Moena side is under another company), that includes Fraina sled tracks, he was telling me that was sent by his boss, the Director of SIT Bellamonte, to Rovereto, to attend to the yearly meeting about the new safety rules regarding winter sports.
Inside all the rules that you can find in this document, there is the minimum width of sled tracks: 6 meters

Oficial Document:
dirittodeglisportdelturismo.jus.unitn.it...po-il-d-lgs-40-2021/

The section where is write this new measure. I leave the original text in Italian:
  1. Le piste di slitta, slittino e parco giochi possiedono le caratteristiche delle piste blu di discesa di cui al comma 1, lettera a), con larghezza minima di 6 metri.

This sentence is inside article number 5:
"Art. 5 – Segnalazione delle piste in base al grado di difficoltà"

the sentence talk about Slitta and slittino.

In another side of the document is explained the difference between Slitta and Slittino, in a section where are explained all possible winter sport activities:

o) slitta: discesa su pista attrezzata con una slitta carenata dotata di pattini;
"p) slittino: sport praticato su una piccola slitta sulla quale si viaggia in posizione supina con i piedi in avanti e su piste ghiacciate;"

It seems that Slittino is referred to race tracks.
This means that this minimum width is mandatory also in the world cup sled tracks, that for sure are not currently >= 6 meters.

Another interesting point is the mentioning about province with special autonomy , like Trento and Bolzano.
I remind you that this document is not related only to Sud Tyrol, or Trento, but it is a national law.
  1. Le disposizioni del presente decreto sono applicabili nelle regioni a statuto speciale e nelle Province autonome di Trento e di Bolzano compatibilmente con i rispettivi statuti e le relative norme di attuazione, anche con riferimento alla legge costituzionale 18ottobre 2001, n. 3.

according with this additional sentence, it seems that Trento and Bolzano can decide not to apply part of the articles of the new law.

But my friend , told me that the President of SIT Bellamonte Luca Guadagnini, that is also the president of the association of all skyresort in Trento province from 2020 to 2024 confirmed that they have to respect this rule.
Till now, I don't know what will happen to Fraina/Bellamonte sled track, snd of course all other tracks in Italy that are not respecting this measure.
When my friend reported this news to the director and responsible of SIT Bellamonte, the man who created Fraina track, the reaction was to close the track.
Now he is on holidays and I can't contact him directly in order to understand, after his first reaction, what is his thought.

I wil inform you when I have more news.

P.S.

This new set of rules is dated April 2021 and was supposed to be fully applied starting from 2022.
It includes also the mandatory stipulation of an insurance policy for skiers. This is mandatory starting from 2022. Other rules have been postponed to 2023, included the minimum width

Gibt es in Italien oder Südtirol eine Rodelbahn mit einer durchgehenden Breite von 6 m? 
Oder meinten sie 6 ft

Probaby today only Speikboden and Kausberg are satisfing this requirement. This is totally crazy, "strade forestali", which are used for sledge tracks, are usually wide between 3,5 to 4,5 meters. six meters is really too much and without any sense. But this is what has been decided till now. I think that, if the rule will be really to be confirmed, this  means the closure of almost all sledge track in Italy.
this adjustment requires a lot of work and will change the shape of the mountain.
This is what was did in Cavalese, when a long blue ski slope, called "via del bosco", was enlarged in the last three km:

Wall along the track. And these, probably are only 4/5 meters, not six.

I hope that something will change before the end of the year

Ich hoffe nicht, dass dann ein Rodelurlaub in Südtirol passé ist.

Glaube kaum - da würde mann sich auch in AT/DE schwer tun, eine Bahn mit solcher Breite zu finden...

I understyand that it is difficult to trust, but this is the original article of the new law in German:

Article nr 4Die Rodel-, Rodel- und Spielplatzbahnen haben die Eigenschaften der blauen Abfahrtspisten nach Absatz 1 Buchstabe a) mit einer Mindestbreite von 6 Metern.

I talked with the skiresort director that came back from Holidays.
He confirmed me that his man, who attended to this safety rules regional meeting, told him about this new requirement.
But after this nobdy told him anything and he is sure that , because the requirement is not applicable, will be again postponed.
So, he decided to wait and no adjustments are done, since now , on Alpe Lusia rodelbahn.
When my friend, who works in the ski resort, and who attended to the meeting, told me immediately about this new requirement, I remembered that here in the forum, someone wrote about this rumor (6 meter minimum), I started to trust in this, and of course, I was afraid about, because really crazy and not applicable.
Now, because the director is confident that nothing will change, and is not worried about the requirement, I'm also confident that we can go rodeling in Italy as in the past.

I thought wider sounded better until you mentioned they will close the tracks narrower than that!

We are gaining resort access here in the US, and are working toward that happening as total freedom on the mountain - like any other device. However, we are regulating equipment to sport rodels only (recessed seat, cable reins, ski runners, braking soles). A sport rodel meets the exact specifications set for ski bike here in the US. We feel that if you don’t give rental rodelers bad equipment they won’t learn bad technique.

Still like the food, people, and lifestyle way more in Europe though.

"Das Aus für viele Rodelbahnen"
Artikel
in der Tiroler Tageszeitung vom 9.9.2022

Gilt das nun nur für neue Rodelbahnen?
Hat jemand weitere Informationen?

Ich war vorige Woche in Sexten, da ist jedenfalls von Verbreiterungen an der Rodelbahn nichts zu sehen.
Ich rechne also damit, die Rodelbahn im Winter wie bisher gewohnt vorzufinden.
