Sirio (Italian for Sirius) is a low-floor tram built by Ansaldobreda, an Italianmarker manufacturer of trains, trams and light rail vehicles. It can be ordered as either one-directional or bi-directional and with a variety of track gauges.


Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM), the city transport company of Milan, has bought 93 Sirios (all one direction cars). In 2002, the first carriages were delivered. The ATM has 58 seven section Sirios (7100 series) with a length of 35.35 meters. These trams have a capacity of 285 people, of which 71 can sit. The ATM has also 35 five section Sirietto (literally "little Sirio": 7500 series) with a length of 25.15 meters. These trams have a capacity of 191 people, of which 50 can sit. Both types of Sirios have a width of 2.40 meter and have been built for the unusual rail gauge of 1445 mm. The maximum speed is 70 km/h. Part of the 7500 will be numbered in the 7600 series because of minor modifications. It is not exactlay known how many Sirio will be built.

All Sirios in Milan sport a dark green livery; the Siriettos sport either the dark green livery or a white-and-yellow livery.
