Authorization process:
Definition: The area is subject to a process of urban modification to the General Regulatory Plan pursuant to art. 10 L.1150/42 (Sub section-A).
State: The aforementioned procedure hasstarted in November 2019 and the urban modification was adopted on February2020.
The interventions for the urban and functional requalification of the railway areas of the Tuscolana Station are part of the Memorandum of Understanding on the Rome railway hub ratified on the 8/3/2000, included in the General Regulatory Plan of Rome 2008, and it is one of the objectives of Memorandum of Understanding ratified on the 24th July 2018 by Gruppo FS and Roma Capitale for the enhancement of the railway infrastructures and the regeneration of disused railway areas.

The site is part of the international competition “Reinventing Cities” promoted by C40 network that aims at obtaining a masterplan and a economic – technical offer for the acquisition of the site from the winning team.

The area is also part of the “Green Ring”, a continuous set of public spaces and city services running along the railway ring between Trastevere and Tiburtina stations.


The following interventions must be included in the development of the urban regeneration program:

  • Accessibility improvement, with a new integrated junction between FS Roma Tuscolana station and Ponte Lungo Line A metro station featuring innovative services;
  • Urban enhancement featuring new urban facilities and services for the people;
  • Requalification of open spaces and architecture, and integration of different urban elements.


The area of intervention is included in the scope of the Rome Tuscolana C15 valorization plan which is subject to a urban modification of the General Regulatory Plan.

The urban modification was adopted. It concerns the urban and functional requalification of the disused and in the process of being decommissioned  areas of the Tuscolana Junction railway section.

The interventions will be implemented through indirect planning means (masterplan – Urban Development Plan) of public initiative with the requirements indicated in Law 1150/42 for the executive plans.

The executive urban planning procedure will have to take into account and regulate the possible implementation of the interventions in different phases through functional sectors that can be independently activated and used also in relation to the Decommissioning Plan of the railway areas.

The site building rights cover a maximum of 34,000 sqm of GFA with functional mix of:

  • single and/or collective housing (20%);
  • retail (20%);
  • tourist accommodation;
  • public and private services;
  • station services (limited to buildings instrumental for railway operations);
  • craft production.

The presence of the railway line constitutes a constraint – it may be derogated only prior to the request and prior to obtaining the express authorization of RFI – because of the construction limit within a distance of 30 m from the railway tracks (DPR 753/80).

The nearby presence of the railway station Rome Tuscolana allows to connect directly the area with Fiumicino International Airport and the main stations of the city, such as Roma Termini (7 minutes), Roma Tiburtina (7 minutes), to access high-speed trains  and Roma Ostiense (7 minutes) and Roma Trastevere (13 minutes). The underground line A allows to reach the historical centre directly.
