Rome, 9 November 2021. “Infra” (, a new web magazine focusing on the latest developments and challenges in the world of infrastructure and mobility is on line from today.

“Infrastructure operators,” states the web magazine’s opening editorial, “are today faced by a series of new challenges that go well beyond the upkeep and development of networks. On the one hand, passengers are demanding the greater efficiency and tailored solutions provided by infrastructure as a service; on the other, the interconnection between different types of infrastructure (roads, airports, railways, power grids and communications) is becoming key to managing traffic flows in the best way possible and enhancing the travel experience.” 

Infra will be constantly updated by a widespread editorial team, which will provide extensive coverage, including analysis, data, research, information, comment and expert opinion on the world
