Via Toledo

History

The Toledo station was designed by Spanish designer Óscar Tusquets Blanca and was inaugurated on September 17, 2012. In the outer space of the bus stop there are three hexagonal pyramids, covered with ochre and blue panels, which provide natural light at the first level of the station. At the entrance of Via Diaz is also the statue of William Kentridge, the Knight of Toledo, six meters high and inaugurated on December 15, 2012.
The lift (covered with glass panels) is located near the escalator, equipped with a corrugated roof, and is followed by a particular walk formed by large orange circles and equipped with volcanic stone seats. On the first basement are integrated in the architectural project the remains of the walls of the Aragonese age, while the mold of a plowed field of the Neolithic, found during the excavation of the station, is exhibited at the Museum Station, in “Neapolis Station”, in the corridor connecting with the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. The atrium is characterized by two mosaics by William Kentridge made by the mosaicist Constantine Aureliano Buccolieri. The first, Central Railway to the city of Naples, The second mosaic, located above the escalators, is entitled Reclamation of the low districts of Naples in relation to the metropolitan railway.
