February issue of La Freccia: a new journey begins

Dario Cirrincione, Head of Communication of the Passenger Hub of FS Group, is the new editor of the monthly magazine

Rome, 1 February 2024 

Welcome aboard the February issue of La Freccia. The traditional greeting of the train conductor to travellers is used by the newly-appointed editor-in-chief of the magazine, Dario Cirrincione, Head of Communication at the Passenger Hub, who invites readers to follow him on this new journey where the keyword is trust.

An itinerary that this month winds its way through characters, destinations and the Sanremo Festival, which is just around the corner. Let's start with Raoul Bova, the face of the cover story who, thanks to his sports background, has understood the importance of 'not feeling like you have arrived'. The actor who plays Don Matteo started the year with several projects boasting positive feelings such as the series The Fantastic 5, in which he coaches a group of Paralympic athletes.

And, speaking of sport, two major events are scheduled in February in partnership with Frecciarossa: the Frecciarossa Final Eight, which awards the 2024 Italian Basketball Cup, returns to Turin from 14 to 18 February, while the Frecciarossa Italian Women's Volleyball Cup will be held in Trieste on 17 and 18 February.

There is no shortage of ideas for discovering certain corners of our country also by train, as suggested by Enit's CEO Ivana Jelinic, who gave an interview to La Freccia. Among this month's destinations are the snowy expanses of Val di Fiemme, in the province of Trento, which is preparing to host the 2026 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games of which FS is a Premium Partner; the Cammino dei Cappuccini that goes from Fossombrone to Ascoli Piceno; and the province of Reggio Calabria, known for its bergamot orange cultivation.

Space is also given over to art and photography. In Turin, the First Mona Lisa, which may have been painted by Leonardo, is on display as well as war reports by Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. In Rome, the figure of the great singer-songwriter Rino Gaetano is retraced thanks to an exhibition curated by his nephew Alessandro.

Finally, we have many interviews with the protagonists from the world of showbiz: from host Fabrizio Biggio, among the revelations of Viva Rai2!, to Andrea Ortis, actor, director and author of the musical La Divina Commedia, and actress Antonella Attili, currently on TV with Màkari and on stage with a play on corruption.

All this and more in the February issue of La Freccia, available in digital format on FSNews and in print on Trenitalia’s Frecce trains, in the FRECCIALounge and in FRECCIAClubs. The contents of FS Italiane's monthly magazine can also be read on the FSNews Telegram channel and feeds on X, fsnews_it and LaFreccia_Mag.
