Bordalo II @ Saint Peter Station

The place chosen is Saint Peter Station which, with 253 trains per day, is the station of the shortest international railway in the world – connecting Italy with Vatican State.

This intervention at Saint Peter Station owned by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (Ferrovia dello Stato Group) talks about the profound metamorphosis of urban areas: the main railway Stations to access the city of Rome, built in the beginning of the 20th century, and at the time placed at the outskirts of the city, became very central after the physiological expansion of the metropolis, and are nowadays used for local and suburban transportation with record peaks of daily users. Forgotten proposes the theme of urban stations to underline their historical meaning but also the real possibility to use more and more metropolitan trains instead of road transportation in the future.
