The Frecce is flying that one with all aircraft on different heights (and all pilots know very well at what height they must fly it). The thing is very well deconflicted. That they look so close is just making good use of some optical illusion. Cross overs at crowd center are mostly choreographed that one aircraft is on one side of a runway or taxiway, the other one on the other side.
A weather forecast is a forecast and just that
