Prototype History:
The UIC (Union International des Chemins de fer) type X is a type of passenger car defined in 1961 by UIC bulletin 567, together with UIC type Y. They have been standardized based on the design introduced after WWII by the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) for its express cars, that was known as üm-Wagen or m-Wagen. The length of the UIC-X cars was the longest of all passenger cars built until then; this length has been kept identical for the UIC-Z type introduced in the 1970's.
Several thousands of these cars have been built for the major western European railways: Germany (DB), Italy (FS), Spain (RENFE), Switzerland (SBB-CFF-FFS), Austria (ÖBB)

Road Name History:
Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane S.p.A. (reporting marks: FS), previously Ferrovie dello Stato, is a state-owned holding company that manages infrastructure and services on the Italian rail network (English: Italian State Railways).
Ferrovie dello Stato was founded in 1905, and marked an important milestone in the process of the unification of Italy.
In 2000, to comply with European regulations, the company's two main divisions, service and infrastructure, were separated and two different independent companies were created: Trenitalia, responsible for transport service, and Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), responsible for the management of the rail infrastructure. Both companies were still subsidiaries of Ferrovie dello Stato Holding SpA.
In 2017, Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane acquired 100% of TrainOSE, the Greek national railways.
