One of the symbols of the city of Milan, the Carrelli tram, also called “Milano 1928”, now enters the collections of the National Museum of Science and Technology, one of the major Italian museums.

Citizens and tourists will be able to admire this iconic historic tram within the railway pavilion.

The tram has been donated by ATM as part of its efforts to preserve and enhance its heritage and at the same time aims to promote the awareness of the role and importance of public transport.

As of today, in Milan 125 Carrelli trams are still in service, being subject to constant maintenance by ATM’s experts in addition to periodical full overhauls carried out within the company General Workshop.

“The Carrelli tram is an icon of Milan throughout the world, a historic vehicle that was strongly innovative in its debut and is still up-to-date being equipped with the latest technological systems – so ATM Group CEO, Arrigo Giana. A synthesis of past and future, memory and modernity, the tram is the place where generations in Milan have been meeting for almost a century”.

The Carrelli tram is well known worldwide: it runs in San Francisco, it’s on display at the Sydney Tramway Museum. A reproduction of more than 2000 Lego bricks has recently been chosen to represent Italy at the Lego House in Billund, Denmark.
