Like many stations in Metronapoli those has a lot of art objects.

But trains are very ugly
It is an old line converted in subway
I agree for the trains, I don't like their style.

Chiaia and San Pasquale are an art masterpiece, I love them

As Madeco said is a new line totally underground

As many people your mistake is given by the old project of LTR (Linea Tranviaria Rapida- Quick Tram Line) a project of '80s which had to start in 1990 but never started
In '90s, when Napoli decided its ambitious transportation project with reconversion of most of its railways for urban metro-like transport and the project of new metro lines, they decided to use the money for LTR for a totally new underground metro line

Anyway they bought the trains (that never used) for the never born tram line: and obviously, not to throw away the money they spent for them they decided to use 'em for the metro (at least the first years, with part of the line to complete: when completed with a higher number of passengers forecasted, they'll provide for new rolling stock)

I understand.

I heard that some line of the Circumvesuviana was transformated in subway.
I hope that you did not keep the old train with graffiti if it was transformated in subway.

When I went in Naples in 2003
It had only two subway lines.

And now the lines are three
Naples is also crossed by several urban trains that lead to the outskirts whose service will be soon like a regular metro's service.

Circumvesuviana covers some of those lines I was talking about and, for it to be confortable and safe, new trains will be bought.

I agree, but I know that the opened section was built using Ltr gallery, so why can't we talk of reconversion?
I apologize if I wrong

In pratica, è vero che la Ltr non è mai partita, però sono state sfruttate le gallerie dell' allora costruenda Ltr. Questo intendevo io.

The opened section was built using only a little part of LTR gallery.

In pratica è stata usata la galleria da Augusto a Mergellina. E' stata costruita in questi anni la galleria da Augusto a Mostra. Le stazioni Mergellina e Mostra sono state costruite solo in questi anni e sono state riqualificate le stazioni Augusto e Lala.

Subway as Art in Naples

In 1997, when the transportation authority in Naples (Italy) announced a tremendous new project to build nine lines of subterranean train tracks that would wind through downtown and connect all the sprawling suburbs of this metropolis (4 millions people in metropolitan area), certainly few paid attention. It would never been built, many probably assumed.

Guess what. Everyone was wrong. In short years, three lines of the subway are operating, and dozens of stations are open. Beyond this, the system itself is an artistic statement. Not only has the city made tremendous headway in rebuilding its infrastructure, it has redefined the role of modern transport.

It all began in 2001, when architects Alessandro & Francesco Mendini unveiled their Salvatore Rosa station on line 1. In effect a museum first and a train station second, the Mendini’s conceived of their building as a tableau for local artists. Hardly a wall or bit of floor space in the entire structure is unadorned with artwork. Burlap-covered cars, mosaic tiles, stained glass: The entire structure seems to shimmer with activity.

A year later, the new station down the line, the Piazza Dante station in the center of downtown, opened. As designed by Gae Aulenti—a glazed, airy building infused with blue light—this too was outfitted by contemporary artists, including Sol Lewitt, Joseph Kosuth, Nicola de Maria, and Jannis Kounellis.

The entire project, which planners hope will be complete in 2011, is mind-boggling. Estimates place the cost at 4 billion Euros, encompassing 1400 kilometers of railways and 400 stations in the Campania region (Metropolitana regionale - Regional metro), and 90 kilometers of subway and 100 stations in the city of Naples.
