Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Florence-Rome high speed railway line is a link in the Italian high-speed rail network. It is known as the ferrovia direttissima Firenze-Roma in Italian meaning "most direct Florence-Rome railway"; this name reflects the naming of the Rome-Formia-Naples Direttissima opened in 1927 and the Bologna-Florence Direttissima opened in 1934. The line was the first high-speed line opened in Europe when more than half of it opened on 24 February 1977. It was completed on 26 May 1992, reducing the time of the fastest trains between the two cities to 1 hour and 20 minutes. The old line is referred to by Ferrovie dello Stato as the Linea Lenta to distinguish it from the parallel high-speed line.show more
