no, it's completely different than your backyard, it's a public road, just
that you need a permit to drive there, but you don't need it to walk there
or to ride your horse. Also, if you went there without a permit in your
car, it would be an offense and you'd have to pay a fine, but if I went
without permission onto your backyard it would be breach of domestic peace
(I think, actually I looked this one up).

If you haven't got permission, the way is closed for you. I assume that is

in Italy, things are often not "clearly signposted", in the case I had in
mind, the situation is this:

don't let you fool by the main sign (it doesn't indicate a oneway road
here, this can also be seen 100 meters further at the next sign),
unfortunately google has blurred the additional sign, but I think it reads
something like "except authorized". I have asked locals how to get the
authorization, you have to apply, pay a fee, and get a permit for a year.
