Campagnolo Shifter Compatibility

Hi folks!

I recently purchased a Wilier Lavaredo 2011 and love it, my one gripe though is the Mirage shifters on there. I'm not a fan of the plastic lever for gear change, I'd like the newer vari-cushion hoods, and wouldn't mind having multi shifting both up and down rather than just up like the Mirage do. Now I know that recently Campagnolo changed a few things about their shifters so I'm not entirely sure about what is/isn't compatible. Here's the current groupset on there:

Shift Levers: Mirage 10 Speed
Front Derailleur: Mirage 10 Speed
Rear Derailleur : Mirage 10 Speed
Cassette: Miche 12-25
Chain: KMC
Crankset: Xenon 50/34
Front & Rear Brakes: Veloce

Am I right in thinking I just need to make sure they're 10 speed shifters or is there more to it? It seems obvious that 9 speed won't work but what about 11 speed?

As a cheap alternative, would the replacement vari-cushion hoods fit the Mirage shifters or has the shape been altered too much?

Cheers, guys!
