Underground movement in Naples

Posted in transport by ruthslavid on December 5, 2011

I was sent a press release showing this new metro station in Naples, at Università, with designs by Karim Rashid, using Corian. My last experience of the Naples metro was of people walking across the tracks to get from one platform to the other, because they couldn’t be bothered to use the long way round. I wonder how much things have changed? Perhaps Naples is the only city where the students show the greatest discipline.

A friend sent this image of a 16th Century fresco that they have uncovered and restored at their house in Umbria, Italy. How lovely!
