Strategic projects

As one of the main transport companies in Italy, we are busy on a frontline role in the planning and production of the strategic infrastructural buildings inserted in “Sblocca Italia”. The primary objectives are to contribute in accelerating special interventions and favour cohesion of the underused areas in Italy, the development of the territory and social solidarity.

The strategic buildings in Sblocca Italia include the Naples – Bari and Palermo – Catania – Messina High Speed/High Capacity routes.
