Malpensa express allows no connection time to Frecciarossa

http://ww.trenitalia.com books the 17:47 Express trains to Milan Centrale station as a connector to the 18:35 Frecciarossa train. Yet http://www.malpensaexpress.it shows this same 366 train as getting into Centrale at 18:35!

How is this possible to make?

I land (if on time) at 16:15, allowing 1hr 15min to collect baggage and rush like mad to make the 17:47, and if I do, will I then make the Frecca? If i know I can't make it, I won't even try.

You are reading the trenitalia site wrong. Yes, the 1747 train from Malpensa Aeroporto arrives at Milano Centrale at 1835. But through connections, the times in the 'Change station' column tell you when to get out of the first train, not when the next train departs. To find that, select the connection and click 'Details by selection'. I agree that this is not particularly obvious.

You may rush like mad, but what if your plane arrives late, immigration lines are long and slow, and baggage handlers don't rush?

I'm arriving from Madrid and I'm planning on connecting to Florence on the 7:22 pm Le Freccia train.

My flight arrives at 6:10pm. Do you think I'll have enough time to catch the train?

I have lounge to pick up.

I would really appreciate your prompt suggestions as I'm traveling next week and a bit nervous as I'm traveling with a child

Thanks
