Dear bugman,
I just came back from a trip to the Dolomites mountains in northern Italy. I had many encounters with spiders. I took a picture of some of them, hoping that you could help me identifying them.
Can you?
Thanks!
Saverio
PS: I have better quality files if needed.

Dear Saverio,
Though they resemble Spiders, most of your images are actually Harvestmen or Daddy-Long-Legs in the order Opiliones.  Unlike Spiders, they do not have venom.  It appears you have three different species represented.
