A courious thing: they changed the name of via Toledo in via Roma (I think under Fascist era or something)
Obviuosly Napolitans kept on call it Toledo (or better: Tulet' in dialect )
But as they were just begginning to call it via Roma, few years ago (I'm afraid that this 'few' could mean at least ten years, time never stops...) administration decided to call it newly via Toledo
And poor Napolitans got their minds a bit confused

But forum language is English. There is a subforum using Italian language: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumd...s=&forumid=169

Is there any reason they are making such architectures like these? I am guessing they are trying to redefine modern architectures. Italians is really way ahead of its time in this field.

Wow, very impressive. I'm green with envy.

Doesn't anybody, like politicians, special interest groups etc, say that they are spending too much on all these fancy designs? Isn't anybody saying that this could be built way cheaper and save taxpayers' money?

Don't get me wrong, I love the designs and I'm all for them, I was just curious if there is opposition to spending that much money.
How much is all this costing anyways?

I think that is important to post the images of Duomo station too. This station is projected by Massimiliano Fuksas ad in my opinion is a very masterpiece, because there is the unification between the modern architecture and the archeology: in fact a roman temple was found during the construction, and this temple will be part of the station. Amazing!

These are great renders, can't wait to see them built. I specially like Universita station, makes me remember of Verner Panton's 60 modern psychedelic designs. Italians always show the world how to make things beautiful.

I'm glad Naples is extending its system. I recently stayed there (though only for a couple of nights) and the metro was pretty worthless for the things I wanted to do (get from the main train station or airport to Piazza Municipio and then get out to Pompeii and back). The bus system was OK, though the streets there are totally insane. I did see a lot of construction activity in Naples though, and it'll be awesome once these extensions are complete.

Another jewel has been revealed. It's the renewed Montesanto Station situated at the Circumflegrea and Cumana's terminal (future lines 5 and 7) and just at the start of the Montesanto cable railway.

Here some more specific info in the italian forum >>http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=199258
