Building the Future with History

Italian engineering DNA at the service of sustainable development

Work begins at the Piazza Venezia construction site

Venezia Station

A unique engineering work

The project

The infrastructure that connects past and future

An infrastructure to power Rome’s development. A project that looks to tomorrow and respects the past: it is the city’s first driverless subway, as well as the first where the stations become real museums.

The Rome Metro – Line C is a great engineering challenge and is a work where history builds the future.

The Line C route

Suburbs and city centre are getting closer

Along the 26 km of the Metro C line from Monte Compatri Pantano to Clodio Mazzini, up to 800,000 people per day can travel, from the suburbs to the heart of the city. The route already in operation runs from the Monte Compatri/Pantano terminus to the San Giovanni station in the heart of the capital, covering a total of 22 stations along 19 km of line. After Clodio Mazzini, two more stations have been funded to run to Farnesina.

Linea C

The Line C under construction includes 3 stations: Porta Metronia, Colosseo – Fori Imperiali, and Venezia. These stations will enter the heart of Rome and will allow the enjoyment of the artifacts found in the excavations thanks to the planned museum setups. The Colosseo station will also be the junction between Line C and the already operational Line B of the Rome metro, expanding the network effect of the capital’s mobility.

22 STATIONS IN OPERATION

The Line C currently in operation connects the southeastern suburbs to the San Giovanni station, a transfer point with Line A and the first example in Rome of a museum station. The route continues through 22 stations.

The Venezia – Clodio/Mazzini route will run through stations Chiesa Nuova, San Pietro, Ottaviano, which is the second interchange node of Line C with Line A, and Clodio/Mazzini.

As a possible opportunity to extend Line C, the Farnesina – Clodio/Mazzini route is in the preliminary design phase by the Client. The project under study includes the construction of two stations: Auditorium and Farnesina. The first will be located near the Auditorium Parco della Musica and the Palazzetto dello Sport; the second will allow a quicker connection to important places for the city such as the Foro Italico, the Olympic Stadium, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Institutes of Public Administration.

San Giovanni

22 Stations in operation

The San Giovanni Station plays a fundamental role in the construction of Line C, especially because it represents the first interchange node with the existing Line A. The project underwent several evolutions following the results of archaeological investigations. The discovery of ancient structures to be preserved, up to a depth of about 18-20 meters from the ground level, led the Special Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Rome to prescribe the impossibility of carrying out ground consolidations from the ground level, favoring open-air excavations with archaeological methods in the backfill soils, up to about 19 meters deep, excluding the realization of mechanized excavations for the construction of line tunnels in the section between San Giovanni Station and Amba Aradam/Ipponio Station.
