From Paris to Milan in less than 7 hours with the new Frecciarossa and by 2022 the High Speed will join Madrid and Barcelona. After the debut in France, this is the next goal that Trenitalia sets itself and its to Luigi Corradi. From the platform of platform 4, in Milan Central Station, the manager underlines the importance of this day that breaks the monopoly that Tgv had. “We have created a train that is truly European, in fact we start in France but then in the future we will go to Austria, to Germany”.
“It was a very exciting journey and also a lot of fun – says the CEO – The train was completely full, with a lot of young people”, many also boarded in Lyon to come to Turin and Milan (intermediate stops Chambery and Modane ). “It costs less than Tgv, as soon as the offer came out, my daughter who is an architect in Paris changed her ticket and wanted to try the new train” says a lady waiting for the train to arrive. “We have launched many offers for 20 euros to try the service and then there are four classes of service as in Italy with the Standard, the Premium, the Business and the Executive. The main advantage (compared to Tgv, ed) is the service on board where there is a little more Made in Italy for the French (with the signature dishes of the starred Chef Carlo Cracco), we pamper our passenger “explains Corradi.
A flashmob in ‘French salsa’ with can-can dancers, Napoleon, Asterix and Obelix and ‘characters’ from beyond the Alps will welcome the passengers on this first trip.
