The story of the adventure of Line 6

Originally partially open, the line suffered a long pause in the works, extending for over a decade due to technical and financial complexities. Jobs, started in the 90s, aimed to create a modern transportation infrastructure that would effectively connect several key areas of the city, but were interrupted several times.

During the years, the plans were revived and modified to adapt to new needs and economic availability. The project saw renewed interest under several city administrators, each of whom brought new ideas and funding to complete the work. The reopening, now scheduled for July 1, 2024, marks the end of a long wait for the citizens of Naples and represents a significant victory in the modernization of the city's public transport services.
