I understand those are cool stations and I certainly love Naples, but I find them too "pop".

I looks tiring to see them every day go and back from work, early in the morning almost asleep. they look perturbating.

I'd prefer something timeless and neutral.
since stations are public spaces done with public money, they should look nice to most of people most of the time.

these stations look like a discotheque or Disneyland“s Candyhouse, I'm afraid after the "new" effect passes, they look disgusting to lots of users.

plus, Naples has wonderful heritage, it's ridiculous to force people to such a contrast.
a counterpoint would be nice, but this level is just childish.

Luli pop, I'm not a fan of contemporary art and I consider myself a fairly good connoisseur of neapolitan art heritage, so I should be an unbiased reviewer.

After visiting the new station, I think that, aside from the exaggerated effect shown in the photos, staying in the station is conversely a different, amiable experience.

It truly seems a virtual place, but in a pleasant way. The feeling is not unnatural as you could guess, and there are an elegance and an harmony in the artworks and installations that clearly outline the difference between this station and a "Disneyland“s Candyhouse".

Some of the shots I took during my station visit:

The Darth Vader-head columns are a nice touch. :/

The columns represent two opposite face profiles

I personally like them, but I think they are too colorful and give someone a seizure one of these days.

I have been in the station; the colours are very strong, but the real effect is nice.
Here are some photos:

Bravo Napoli!! This design is so imaginative that it changes the idea of how one metro-station should looks like. This cannot be compared with anything around the world.

Good grief, those colours are garish! I've never seen such a brightly decorated metro system! I'm still undecided as to whether I like them.

I had the same thoughts before i visited Napoli and took a ride on its metro. Especially all those pinkish colors:/ But now im a big fan of Metro Napoli! It feels much better life than on pictures.

I applaud the colorful creativity used, but I'm not a strong advocate for this kind of work in metro stations. They may look cool or hip now, but ten or twenty years from now these stations will probably look absolutely ridiculous.

Colours are timeless! The only trickiness lies in keeping all that invigorating colourfulness spruced up, free of grime...

Well done! I'd say its bedazzlement'll definitely outlive us & then some
It's no easy feat what Naples has accomplished, believe us!
I guess its dull signage would have to be standing back from the rest of its surroundings.
