ROMA: 1926 - Special 1992 commemorative booklet

Product Description

Italian Line: In the 1980s a large marble statue of the goddess Roma was discovered under a stairway in Genoa.

The statue once adorned the First Class Lounge aboard the transatlantic steamer ROMA. That prompted the Propeller Club of Genoa to start a movement to have the statue displayed at Genoa's Maritime Station. This booklet came out of that effort.

The introduction in the twenty-eight page booklet explains that ROMA and sister AUGUSTUS were the first luxury Italian liners placed on the North Atlantic run. Chapters describe the building, service history, and interior design. While the intro is in English and Italian, the chapters are just in Italian. No matter, the many photos tell the story. In the center is a color cutaway.

Just in case you don't remember the ending, in 1941 the ROMA's superstructure was sheered off and replaced by a flattop to become the aircraft carrier AQUILA. Ironically, Italian torpedoes sunk the ship in 1945 so that the Germans couldn't use her to block Genoa's harbor.

Excellent condition.
