This DVD was sent to me by my friend Tolvis who received it from another trader. Huge thanks to both for sharing and for permitting me to upload it! 
Several (NTSC) DVD copies of a ~45 min TV broadcast of this show were uploaded over the years. Before I recently received this 51:05 min (PAL) DVD, I was entirely unaware of any longer TV broadcast - even though I did sometimes wonder if it might exist, because the famous, but misleadingly titled SBD bootleg CD "Europe 1993" runs over 50 min and differs tracklist-wise from the ~45 min TV broadcast. This ~51 min TV broadcast has exactly the same tracklist as "Europe 1993". Thus, it contains "Master of Insanity", "After All (The Dead)" and "Iron Man", all of which are NOT included in the ~45 min broadcast (the latter containing the song "Black Sabbath" instead). Since both "Master of Insanity" and "After All (The Dead)" are favourites of mine, that was really good news for me. 

Video and audio quality of this 1st gen VHS > PAL DVD is really nice but far from perfect (its most obvious flaw being the noise before and after "Computer God"). Check out snapshots and audio sample below. 

The ~45 min broadcast with the song "Black Sabbath" is well-circulated, but only on NTSC DVD. Since Italy was a PAL country, a PAL version would be preferable.
