Information from Luca:

There are lots of smoking rooms inside all terminals, they used to be bigger but even if smaller now are present. Max 6 smokers per cabin (often 8 fit) . Smoking outside terminals is extremely common with ashtrays everywhere, actually outside terminal os rare to see a non smoking sign. In 90 percent of outside area smoking is permitted.
