ROMA TIBURTINA RAILWAY STATION

The project

  • Location Roma - Italy
  • Studio ABDR Architetti Associati

The new Tiburtina Station in Rome designed by ABDR is a result of an international architecture competition dating in 2002. An international, regional and metropolitan node designed as a bridge-station between two districts, Pietralata and Nomentano, which have been historically separated by the railway line.
The huge block is a 240m long glass parallelepiped suspended at nine metres above the existing rail tracks, measuring fifty meters in width at a constant height of 10.5m and divided into eight volumes for the services offered to travellers and local citizens.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
