The Rail Market in Italy

Italy's Rail Market

Rail in Italy continues to benefit from high levels of investments. Dominating the market is national railway company Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, which includes the national network manager RFI Rete Ferroviaria Italiana. Recent updates to the Contratto di Programma between RFI and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport provide for spending of €17 billion of enhancements to Italy's main line railway infrastructure between 2015 and 2020.

Urban networks in Italy's biggest cities are undergoing expansion and modernisation too. Milan, Naples and Turin are among metropolitan centres benefiting from continuing investment.
