Rete Ferroviaria Italiana was incorporated on 1 July 2001 to implement the EU Directives adopted by the Italian Government, imposing a separation between the network manager and the transport service provider.
RFI’s mission is defined from the Act of Concession for the management of the national railway infrastructure, based on the specific regulations of the sector, both nationally and on an EU level, along with Programme Contracts with the State.
