In Italy, the report recalls, there are 248 kilometers of metro, less than in the city of Madrid alone (291 km). For the “Development of rapid mass transport systems” in urban areas, between the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and state resources, 116.5 kilometers of meters between new and reconversions are in the pipeline or financed (in Rome, Milan, Turin, Genoa, Naples, Catania), 235.7 of tramways (in Milan, Bergamo, Brescia, Padua, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples, Palermo, Cagliari and Sassari), 102.9 of trolleybuses and busses (among those financed 100% %).
In the last ten years the differences between the areas of the country have widened due to the unequal quality of the railway service and the South continues to suffer the greatest delays in terms of national and regional travel possibilities, with fewer, slower and older trains. (HANDLE).
