The new station was designed by Massimiliano Fuksas and will serve the Pendino quarter as well as the areas of via Marina, much of Corso Umberto I, and the immediate area around the cathedral (“Duomo”). The entrance south of the cathedral itself at Piazza Nicola Amore will be marked by an extraordinary futuristic skylight and, underground, by the incorporation in situ of the large podium of a temple to Augustus Caesar built to commemorate the Isolympic Games of Neapolis in the first century A.D. This is a unique example of fine archaeology and urban transportation. This station is certainly on the ever-growing list of “art stations” in Naples. Due to open in 2019.
