Grandi Stazioni SpA

Upgrading, valorizing and managing Italy’s 13 largest railway stations: this is the key objective of Grandi Stazioni Spa, 60% of which is owned by the Italian rail operator, Ferrovie dello Stato, while the remaining 40% is held by the company Eurostazioni Spa, in partnership with Edizione Srl (Benetton Group), Vianini Lavori Spa (Caltagirone Group), Pirelli & C. Spa (Pirelli Group) and Sncf Partecipations S.A. (Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer).
The stations of Milano Centrale, Torino Porta Nuova, Genova Brignole and Genova Piazza Principe, Venezia Mestre and Venezia S. Lucia, Verona Porta Nuova, Bologna Centrale, Firenze S.M. Novella, Roma Termini, Napoli Centrale, Bari Centrale and Palermo Centrale are all gateways to the country and first impressions count.

These major stations constitute a unique complex, in that they are simultaneously frontiers, potentials and showcases of modernisation and development.

The major stations’ value is confirmed by:
• the over 600 million persons passing through them every year
• 1,500,000 m2 of real-estate properties
• our shareholders, an ideal mix of public-sector experience and private-sector management skills 
• our commercial partners, who have bet on us and won the wager 
• the huge investments that have allowed the reinvention of public space

The renovation scheme implemented at Roma Termini for the 2000 Jubilee has confirmed the strength and adequacy of Grandi Stazioni's project internationally. In November 2002, the Company extended its commitment beyond Italy’s borders when it won the tender from the Czech rail operator Ceské Dràhy for the refurbishment and renovation and 30-year operation of Prague Central station and Bohemia’s two main railway stations, Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne. In Prague the refurbishment works have been under way since December 2006, and by the end of this year a considerable part of the station will be reopened for travellers.

Today, renovation work is completed at Milano Centrale, Torino Porta Nuova,  Napoli Centrale, Firenze Santa Maria Novella, Genova Principe, Genova Brignole, Verona Porta Nuova, Venezia Santa Lucia and Bologna Centrale and will soon also be extended to the other Grandi Stazioni network stations.
