cutting-edge and sustainable tech: future and innovation run on rails!

High-speed trains have revolutionized the way many people travel, bringing regions and cities closer together, giving the national and local economies an invaluable boost, and offering opportunities for travel that, until a few years ago, were literally unthinkable.

Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane (FS), the Italian State Railways was the first company to add its Frecce trains (high-speed trains) to Italy’s railway network and, this year, the FS Group’s high-speed train system celebrates its first 10 years. To commemorate this achievement, at the Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition 2019, a special area dedicated to the FS and its high-speed trains definitely could not be missing!

Moreover, with 620 miles (1000 km) of high-speed rail built and 300 million passengers transported in 10 years, high-speed rail travel is a key area of technological innovation that has improved the quality of daily life and helped Italy to reach higher levels of economic and social development.

 

In fact, thanks to the FS Frecce high-speed train system, Italy has been able to maintain closer contacts with the rest of Europe. Moreover, with access to a fast and efficient means of travel like the FS Frecce, now many people, for leisure, work or tourism, have the possibility to quickly reach places far from each other while traveling with comfort and punctuality.

At Maker Faire, the huge international event dedicated to innovative technology to be held from October 18 to 20 at the Fiera di Roma, the FS will welcome visitors in a very special way. 

High-speed railway travel, in fact, will become the object of an original immersive experience, that will allow everyone to discover at 360 degrees infrastructure, technologies, and management systems. Everything about a high-speed railway system that, in simple words, manages every day to move thousands of passengers from one end of Italy to the other, efficiently and with very little environmental impact.

Eco-sustainable mobility is a truly central issue for those who, like FS, promote innovation and services linked to the use of trains, a means of transport which, thanks to the Italian railway company, continue to be projected into the future.
