The Piazza Garibaldi is the forecourt of the central railway station in Naples as well as of the bus station, the tram and the metro line 2. More than 50 million passengers travel through the railway station every year.


Eight metal girders form the large pergola (300 x 20 m) and are covered by various metal sheets and glass panels.

Three different assembly modules, measuring 50 x 28 m, were designed to give the structure the appearance of a random arrangement.

Structural Analysis

Because Naples is located in a seismic zone, an independent thorough calculation of each structure was performed.
