After the success of the book about
Rome’s main station, Archeologia a Roma
Termini, here is another book published
in cooperation with the company Grandi
Stazioni. From Naples’ first station, built
just after Italian Unification, to the
building of the new station shortly after
WWII, the book describes the complex
experience of a place that has become a
symbol of modern Naples.
The first part of the book focuses on
the original station, built in 1866, the city’s
new ‘eastern gate’, designed by architect and
town-planner Enrico Alvino. The second
part of the book describes the railway
network of the early 20th century, and
looks at the evolution of various designs
and alterations made during the period.
