The AGV Italo high-speed train, produced by Alstom for NTV- Nuovo Transporto Viaggiatori, stands between the excellences of design and international style.

The influential British magazine Wallpaper* Magazine has included the train among the winners of the prestigious Design Award 2013, an award given annually to the most beautiful and innovative products on the market. In particular, the NTV train, operating in Italy since April 2012, has won the category "Life enhancer of the year", the section dedicated to projects that make life better.

The international publication entrusts every year a panel of big names in fashion, design and architecture to select the "best of the best" of the past year for eleven different categories: from the best city, to the most interesting fashion collection to the number one restaurant in the world.

Wallpaper*, global brand of style, published monthly in 93 countries, publishes a special edition for iPad and has a Twitter profile with more than 780,000 followers.

The Italo train, in just 8 months of the year, has been chosen by more than 2 million passengers.
