Actually, Napoli-Salerno is not a real high speed line; the project date to '70 and it seems more a german "ABS".

Nope!
The line has a top speed of 250km/h , with several sections where the top speed is limited to 140-160-180 km/h.

Also, it seems that the maximum line speed is not yet exploited on revenue services.

The journey times for the fast trains are around 35 minutes for the IC, 30 minutes for the Eurostar Italia which is a first level IC, and 37 minutes for the FrecciaRossa, which is meant to be the fastest italian HST...

Since the line lenght is about 69 km..the best average speed achieved by the first level ICs (Eurostar Italia) is short of 140 km/h, whilst the fastest HST (FrecciaRossa) has an average speed of about 120 km/h.

Two Frecciarossa collided this evening on entering Rome Termini station. Seven people are reported injured, none of them seriously. Rail traffic around Rome was severely disrupted.

So any early impressions about the new Italo service? Everything running smoothly so far?

Pretty much. There are complains that the WiFi doesn't work between Florence and Bologna, but apart from that not much to say.

I tried it a few days ago, Naples - Bologna.

Long story short:
- high quality ride, not as the ETR 500 which still are great;
- best acceleration I've ever seen in Europe, even at full speed;
- second class (Smart) seats are incredibly uncomfortable, and that's a pity;
- very high standards in Customer Care and great attention to details.

Still some set-up problems with WiFi and on board Cinema, but I think they'll sort them up.

Terrible seats apart, NTV is offering a great package.

"Soon" :-)
Don't hold your breath. Ansaldo is building these. Might be a boon for NTV though, because they do have their shiny new trains....
