The name "direttissima" is only valid for Roma - Firenze?

No.

One of the 3 Firenze-Bologna lines is also called "direttissima".

Direttissima is, on a loose translation, "fast [line]"

It is also used for some other "fast lines" built in early 20th century before WW2 as more straight alignments for old, pioneer railways.

This is a commutertrain passing Peschiera del Garda, June 7 2008.

I think the route of this train is Milan-Venice

How is the NTv Italo performing? Reliability, comfort, service, ridership?

Freccie train service network expanded

Trenitalia strategy of expanding the "Freccie" high(er) speed trains continues with the timetable annual change.

Several additional Frecciarossa (the top category HST) will serve Torino and Salerno. They will also start using more Freccie trains calling at intermediate stations between Bologna and Milano including the brand-new one in Reggio Emilia.

They are also going to run some Freccie trains on the Adriatic line all the way to Torino, addressing in parts some old complaints about connectivity in Liguria.

Improved Station Schedule information (online)

For those who want to check it, RFI (the Italian network infrastructure management company) has improved its online tool that allows you to look at station timetables (arrival and departures).

You can find the query tool here: http://www.rfi.it/cms/v/index.jsp?vg...4016f90aRCRD#2

This is just the static information, not the dynamic info of real-time traffic.

New regional trains, produced by Alstom in Italy for Trenitalia. 70 electric trains plus an option of another 20 trains with maintenance of the fleet. Entry into service in January 2014.

They are also going to run some Freccie trains on the Adriatic line all the way to Torino, addressing in parts some old complaints about connectivity in Liguria.
Furthermore, with the "faboulous" underground pass in Bologna Station, pompously defined by TI General manager, Mr Mauro Moretti "an important underpass for the entire Europe" and , also modestly described by some Italian Politicians as " on of the two artefacts that the World envy us" there was an astonishing reduction in travelling time from Milan Central to Bologna Cental Station (214, 6 km) of just 3 minutes .

Now it is possible possible to go from Milan to Bologna in just 62 minutes instead of the usual 65' , and this "considerable" reduction in travelling time has been obtained at the modest cost of a few billion euros per each minute shaved off the timetable.

2-
However with the Milan -Bologna HSTs stopping at the HS Mediopadana Station the total travelling time from Milan Central to Bologna AV Station has increased to 69~70 minutes!!!!!!.

3-
The Bologna - Ancona section of the Adriatic line has been upgraded for 200 km/h running in the early 90s.
However since the 200 km/h running are not yet authorised in such line for lacking of adeqaute singalling system, the Milan - Bologna - Rimini- Ancona HST , will have a journey time of about 2 hours and the average commecial High Speed (!) will be 102~103 km/h.

With these new HST services the journey time from from Milan to Ancona (418, 6 km) will be just 3 hours, at an average speed of almost 140 km/h.

Really exceptional!
=====

PS:

The new HST trains connecting the Adriatic line to Milan (or, perhaps to Turin) will not address the complaints about connectivity expressed by Liguria .

You can see from the Italian map that Turin is in the Piedmont Region, not in Liguria
.

I remember that the first generation of these trains called MINUETTO have had technical problems and were withdrawn for a heavy maintenance. Italy 1-1 France :-)

ALe 840+Lebc 840 multisystem EMU, as far I know the only bi-current three-phase AC+3 kV DC electric engine.
