Strange Futuristic Metro Station in Naples

August 9, 2015

There's an art world "down there", but you won't know unless you enter the Naples metro and see for yourself.
I wanted to travel with the metro, but it was closed due to reconstruction work. The art down there was amazing.

My feet were tired and I thought I'd speed up the process of getting home to my hotel (which was Hotel Zara, by the way) in the proximity of the Giuseppe Garibaldi Square.

I just found the Università Station and descended into the "abyss"...


Descending... looking at the tiles I thought it's the entrance to an underground digital toilet of some sort...

To my surprise, everything looked new and squeaky clean. I was expecting a descent into a dark filthy tunnel, but to my surprise, things looked a lot prettier "down there".

Cliché shapes. Typical digital kitsch. I hope it doesn't wear off...

Obviously, construction was undergoing and therefore - everything looked like new. But, from what I understood - they were restoring the old (already existing) stations.

I looked it up to see who renovated the Università Station: Karim Rashid - New York designer (here's the Karim Rashid website).

For more photos of the station, I recommend this link.
