We were founded on 1 July 2001 as RFI - Rete Ferroviaria Italiana SpA, in response to the need to separate the network manager from the provider of transport services. We are responsible for keeping the railway infrastructure in full working order, allowing over 9000 passenger trains and tons of freight to run on them every day in complete safety.
As of 2022, we are the lead company of the FS Italiane Group’s Infrastructure Hub, which also includes Anas, Italferr and Ferrovie Sud Est. The Hub manages 160 billion euro in investments from today to 2031 (with 110 billion for railways and 50 billion for roads), 16,800 kilometres of railway lines (counting over 1,600 tunnels, 23,000 bridges and viaducts and 2,200 stations) plus 32,000 kilometres of roads (with over 2,000 tunnels, 18,000 bridges and viaducts and 1,200 roadman’s houses). The aim is to upgrade and integrate rail and road infrastructure, rendering them both more modern, resilient, interconnected and accessible to all. This synergy must be there right from the planning phase of the works, defining and specialising the roles of the various infrastructure, but also in those for the design, technological development and maintenance.
