Italo to operate from Roma Termini

High-speed network signs deal with rival

The high-speed train service Italo will soon operate out of Rome's central Termini station, following an agreement with its rival, the Italian FS state railway.

Until now the privately-operated service, which made its inaugural voyage from Naples to Milan almost two years ago, has been based out of Rome's Tiburtina station.

The Rome-based company is operated by Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (NTV), a private company headed by Ferrari chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. Its 25 ultra-fast trains were manufactured in France and have a maximum commercial speed of up to 360 km/h.

Italo is the first private operator in Italy's high-speed rail network.
