The transports’ infrastructure represent a key element for the economic growth of both regions and sectors in Italy. In order to better examine it, we go through the analysis of passenger traffic making a distinction among modes of transport: railway, airport, road and sea. The study gives also a statistical overview on accidents related to the different means of transport; where the number of road accidents, despite its decline, remains very high. The paper concludes with recommendation toward strategies to implement security, particularly in those areas disadvantaged, as the Mezzogiorno.
