Ferrovie dello Stato was founded in 1905, and marked an important milestone in the process of the unification of Italy. Serving citizens for more than a century, our Group has contributed to the economic growth, social and cultural development of the country.

We have a huge, pulsing, 24 hour network run for the benefit of all; a high precision mechanism that relies on the commitment of women and men. The men and women who are dedicated to this work with passion, under all conditions and in any corner of the country are professional railway workers by vocation, with a deep sense of belonging.

Innovations, records and major strategic works have marked the history of the Ferrovie dello Stato and have become part of the life of Italians. Change, development and modernity are the levers that drive us to do better. For over a century, our goal has been to ensure the development and proper functioning of a company that belongs to all Italians: the FS Italiane Group.
