Most railway stations in Italy are maintained and operated by RFI, a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato Group. A minor part of them are operated by private and regional companies, conceded by the state.[1][2]


RFI classifies stations into Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze categories.[3]


Major stations with over 6,000 passengers per day. As major interchanges they will have many departures and arrivals daily, and will be served by high speed/long distance services. They are the principal stations for the Italian cities they serve. They have the highest commercial potential (both fares and revenue from on-site merchants). 16 stations are classified as platinum:[4]


Gold stations have high traffic levels. These include major urban inter-changes and stations serving large towns. They have a lower commercial potential.


This class includes all other small to medium-sized stations served by metropolitan and regional services. Some of these may be served by long distance services.


Small stations with low passenger numbers. This includes minor stations served by regional services.
