I've created a new page called Work and I've added it on the navigation bar; after that I've created a file called work.php in which I want to style the page mentioned above.

The problem is that the page doesn't show the new template created in work.php even if I selected it on the Wordpress graphic interface, but instead it shows the template of index.php. Does anyone know where the problem is? Thanks!

That isn't how custom page templates or post specific templates work, have you looked at the template hierarchy diagram? –  Tom J Nowell Jul 25 at 15:13
    
the template name should be page-work.php –  gdaniel Jul 25 at 15:29
    
    
Yes, I have looked at the template hierarchy diagram and I have followed those instructions. I've tried to use page-work.php but the results are the same. It is weird that it doesn't work because I've also used this process for the other pages.. –  DamianFox Jul 25 at 17:11
