The station interiors

The changes made after 1865 have maintained both the façade and the first class waiting room, also known as Sala Reale, decorated by the painter Francesco Gonin. The paintings represent the four natural elements, Earth, Water, Air and Fire - through their respective mythological characters. Moreover, in the four corners of the room, twirling angels hold the maps of Europe, America, Asia, and Africa.
