The bottom bracket in your link is 68mm. It's a standard width.

Thanks guys. Yes, I know I need to make sure its either English or Italian.

I was mainly wondering about the bottom bracket Length though (meaning the distance between the left and right crankarms).

When you look at a square taper bottom bracket you can buy, they give you many different lengths, ranging from 107mm to 127mm:
Shimano UN55 Bottom Bracket > Components > Drivetrain > Threaded | Jenson USA

Does this not apply to the Hollowtech II bottom brackets? Why does it only come in 1 length?? Will it fit, no matter what the length of my Square taper is? (Which is 113mm according to the Velobase article).
