SOme cities much more humid than others. Mine and many others on this northern plane are particularly so. Yes, the shorts thing might be a no-no if one is of a certain sartorial persuasion, especially in the city I just dress for comfort...
All above are very nice, if less touristy than the other places you've visited. Nice lack of tourists... Also- Mantova (Mantua) is beautiful. See Palazzo Te and Teatro Bibiena. Vicenza - very nice, get a tour of the incredible Teatro Olimpico (seen at end of Ripley's Game) Verona is nice but a tourist hell most of the time PM me if you get to Modena and want eating recs .
not quite, but very hot in July and August. typically mid- to high 30s. Low 40s can be common in big cities. I find Florence particularly hot, mainly due to its position and geography. I wear linens. Shorts with a nice cut and length, linen shirts, sockless slim loafers, well-styled unfussy vintagey 'low-cut trainers' classier than the superga/allstar sector.

I have some Blundstone boots which I've practically lived in for 3 months. Bought here in Italy so not cheap. Sister is going to Oz and am thinking about asking her to pick some up. Am wondering if the typical OZ web prices are similar to OZ shop prices? here for example, come in around AU$90 -100 for dress boots. Other models are less. Here various models start at AU$80 and go up to 138. Would I expect to pay more or less the same in shops in main cities? thanks
Two Days, one Night was excellent. Marion Cotilard should get best Oscar even if she won't. Imagine J Moore will for Still Alice, which was also excellent. Agree about Whiplash- excellent. Looking fwd to seeing Leviathan which has been highly praised.
I'm aware that over recent years NYC has become generally safer but which areas of Manhattan are most dangerous today and should be avoided, particularly at night, by even a street-wise tourist?
