How different Stazione Termini, Rome's main railway station, once looked. Built to a design by the Roman architect Salvatore Bianchi (1821-84), the station was completed in 1874. Little more than sixty years later it was torn down and replaced by the modernist building we see today.
The new station, which was designed by two teams of architects, was opened in 1950.
