Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
FS used the occasion of every new line to break its own record in test runs - by minute amounts: 348 km/h on the Rome-Naples line, 350.8 and then 352.0 km/h on the Turin-Novara line, and back on 1 March, 355.5 km/h on Milan-Bologna. Here is a video of the last-mentioned run:

(Though the test train had only 3 middle cars, the acceleration from 199 km/h to the top speed took more than ten minutes.)
