​The Sixties were a golden age for Italian shipbuilding, especially for liners. There was the likes of the handsome Leonardo da Vinci, the sisters Guglielmo Marconi & Galileo Galilei and then the big Michelangelo & Raffaello, the innovative Oceanic & the smart Eugenio "C".

These ships all appear in our new book Great Mediterranean Passenger Liners.
