FAQ: frequently asked questions

When was it built?

Work on Rome’s metro line A began with the first Osteria del Curato-Termini section in 1963, but due to a series of bureaucratic hurdles and unforeseen obstacles, work was halted and resumed 5 years later. Frequent archaeological discoveries during excavations and the transit of the line over the Tiber River caused further delays. The Metro A line finally entered service in February 1980 in the section from Ottaviano to Cinecittà.

The following segment between Cinecittà and Anagnina, the last station and current terminus, was opened shortly afterwards, also in 1980. The section from Ottaviano to Valle Aurelia, with the intermediate station of Cipro, went into service in 1999. The following year, the last section up to Battistini, with intermediate stations Baldo degli Ubaldi and Cornelia, was put into service.
