Parking for motorhomes in Italy is probably one of the most liberal in Europe. As long as there is no sign directly prohibiting motorhome parking, you are allowed to do so. This is partly due to many residents using these public parkings to semi-permanently 'park/store' their motorhomes. Official or quasi official aires are plentiful down to Lazio, Marche and Umbria areas with the exceptions of such areas as around the Lakes, along the coastlines and around the Dolomite area.

Aires are mostly kept open well into the winter. Some sites may turn off their services when the weather starts to freeze. A number of these sites are created not only for tourists but for local residents who use them for both the services before and after their journeys and to store their vehicles. So you might be surprised to find some public parking/aires that are quite full during the winter (i.e., Arezzo).
In recent years a number of new aires have been added but others have been closed down/fenced off due to some unknown reasons -- for example, the parking in Turin at 45.080763,7.583481 and Pinerolo at 44.889635,7.351644 - Both well built and well equipped.
Overnight parking south of Lazio, Marche and Umbria during the season probably is best done with campsites - There are a number of campsites that cost between 12.00-15.00 € around. During the off season period, virtually all of these sites are closed but pay public parkings are often free during this period.
