That's exactly my point. Line A has new trains, new looking stations, in general it appears world-class. Have they concentrated 100% of the maintenance money on that particular line in recent years or something?

How's construction for Line C going? When I was in Rome about a month ago I remember seeing big developments next to the Colosseum and also in Piazza Venezia (which isn't really a piazza, it's a bloody big traffic roundabout).

i too was in Rome few years ago and i remember metro is really ugly...
well i'm used to grafitti cause in Zagreb we also have that problem, especially on bus stops and inside trams...
i don't know how can people do those things... i assumed Romans are much more cultural and civilised than us...

but as far i saw, grafittis aren't just on metro stations and trains, they are everywhere on buildings through city... so i think problem can't just be solved by metro improvements... it requires acting on higher level than that.... and whole city should be involved in education and restrictions with higher penalities for drawing...

Are there any plans to clean up Line B ? Seems like there would be a bit of an outcry about forging ahead with a third line, while neglecting an existing line.

A lot of subways use overhead wires instead of third rails.

If the tunnels are large enough for pantograph-catenary system, there can be.

there are just few tram lines in rome, before the war the network was pretty large but during fifties and sixties was mostly disasembled at those times authorities had a concept of mobility based on private cars and buses only in lately nineties their discovered how much the tramway network is useful so the line 8 was built, the new masterplan count some new lines but there are no terms about when those will be build...

before the ww2 there was somthing like 50 lines today there are 6 lines

the modern "network":

Unfortunately u r right
When somebody asks about the ugliest metro - i always think about italian systems and especially about the Rom's one.
The transport authority there seems to be fully incompetent to handle this problem and inefficient to preserve the cleaness.
Even the newest - cute - trains become dirtier and dirtier. It's a deasaster! Unfortunately.

that is right, Falubaz..

the italian capital city got an ugly, old and dirty Metro system.
just one of all stations is refurbished and clean: Manzoni, A line.
ALL the others stations are crappy at all.

such a shame

Paris? It has some 'un-nice' places, but is way cleaner than the Rom metro. It has not scratches and those 'almost-grafitti' on every train.
And Rom is really such a shame, cos we used to think italians have some style by making things beautiful, but obviously to make them dirty as well and not taking care.

Yeh Naples metro is clean, had beautiful station and without graffiti but the train are ugly.
This is for Napolimetro line 1. The line 2 is an ugly suburban line and I don't know the line 6.

Turin metro look good but Milan metro is so ugly.
