Locked in

If the door is only partially closed (onto the first catch) I can no longer open it from the inside. I have to wind down the window and open it from the outside or climb out the other door. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Had the same problem... upon inspection it turned ou to be the door lock cable had started to split and had stretched a bit with use.

Solution: new door lock cable (only about 7 Euros!!)

I had your exact problem, on my 99 GTV. I booked the car in at an Alfa dealer and they charged me for 30 mins labour and said no fault found. I have not been back there since. Last time I got my car serviced I took it to Gonnella Bros and the guy fixed the problem for me for free. I don't think it was very difficult.
Not much good to you as I don't know what he did and I'm in London but there is hope of an easy solution.
