Opened in 1876, the station’s central body – designed by architect Ratti from the Clementina Architecture Academy – features a regular volumetric plan, with stylistic influences from 15th century Florentine architecture. Between 1926 and 1934, a series of enlargements, like the construction of the west and right wings and the post-war modifications, altered its plan and shape. The station underwent severe damage in the famous terrorist attack of August 2 1980, which cost several victims. A breach in the wall of the waiting hall stays there in memory of the tragic event.
