It was the first twin-seat plant with moving chairs in Italy. "Von Roll" was the system adopted. There were nine bolted steel pylons, the last of which was quadruple.


The new Vesuvius chair lift

The chair lift path was 730 meter long, and overcame a difference of level of about 400 meter, with an average gradient of 55 %, from an altitude of 753 meter, corresponding to the funicular lower Station, of which followed roughly the route, to an altitude of 1160 meter, the top of the crater. The chairs were able to run every 30 seconds, giving a capacity of 240 passengers in an hour and takes five minutes with a speed of 1,5 m/s. The chairs kept themselves until 4 meter from the ground.
