Naples’ Metro Station given a dramatic visual make-over

There’s an exciting project happening in Naples’ underground metro stations involving artists, designers and architects such as Alessandro Mendini, Anish Kapoor, Gae Aulenti Jannis Kounellis, Karim Rashid, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Sol LeWitt. Called the Art Stations Project, the initiative involves filling stations with amazing art and then opening them up for public viewing. One of our favourites is the Toledo Metro Station (pictured) which opened in September 2012 and was designed by Oscar Tusquets Blanca. You could say I’m a little jealous. The only art I come across in Sydney’s underground stations is graffiti.
