Wish they'd be in full service before June 14th. I will be taking the Italo on the 24th from Milan to Florence. They look much more sleek than the ETR 500. I know they were going to be doing a first run for the Expo opening but other than that, I wonder if they will have them in limited service between the start of Expo and the summer schedule.

The Frecciarossa 1000 service will initially provide eight trains each way on the core route between Roma and Milano, of which four will run through to Torino and four will terminate at Rho Fiera Milano to serve the Expo 2015 fair. At the southern end, seven trains will run to or from Napoli. Another six trips each way will be added in September, with the total increasing again to 22 trains in each direction from the December 2015 timetable change.
Although designed for a maximum speed of 360 km/h, the trains will initially enter service at 300 km/h. Trenitalia says this will ensure ‘outstanding performance in terms of acceleration, traction, braking and safety’, as well as a high level of onboard comfort ‘to meet the different requirements and needs of every traveller'

It is a nice train. I still prefer the AGVs of ItaloTreno, though, in terms of design.

How do their technical specs compare?
