Work on upgrading and enhancement of the entire structure of the station building is currently being completed. The work is financed by an investment of approximately 2.4 million euros by Centostazioni and RFI. To achieve a uniform appearance and enhance the main facades, the front and sides of the building have received a veneer of brick and Vicenza yellow stone.
In addition to the retrofitting of existing facilities, and removal of architectural barriers (with the laying of a new path for the vision-impaired), the station has been equipped with new shopping facilities. The previously existing businesses (bar/pizzeria, a tobacconist, newsagent and bank with door ATM) have been joined by a bookshop (Libreria Mondadori), a perfume shop/convenience store (Schlecker), a phone shop (Smartphone), a costume jewellery shop (4You), a clothing store (Fila), another shop (Zippo), an insurance office and a car rental agency (Major).
The station has about 7.7 million passenger movements each year.
