Your are comparing the Alitalia's European Business Class with an intercontinental Business Class. All Business Class of the short haul and regional flights are different from the long haul flights. Besides is a single aisle aircraft (MD80) not a widebody plane.

i have travelled with AZ's Biz.Class several times and i have to say that considering the Seat and legroom of that MD80 seat, it is one of the best i have experienced for a European short haul product!

The seats in your pic are Magnifica (J) on an MD-11. Alitalia dropped their long-range first (Top Class) years ago. Great service compensating for the lack (as yet) of personal entertainment.
Regarding short-haul biz class, it's obviously unfair to compare an MD-80 with a 747! Anyway, as far as first and biz class go on short-range narrowbodies, AZ MD-80s are great. I'm 190 cm tall (6'3'') and I never had any legroom problems. Felt even roomier than Swissair and the service was good.
