Photographs: We hereby wish to thank Uwe Delfs Jespersen of and “Project Michelangelo” for the use of their photographs of these two fine Italian liners. Other photographs and postcards are from the private collections of Mr. C. Dorio (Verona Italy), and the author’. We highly recommend a visit to: 


The history of these two Italia Line liners are described on page ONE. A link to that page can be found at the bottom of this page including the Raffaello photo page.


How can we ever forget those funnels?

Photographs on ssmaritime and associate pages are by the author or from the author’s private collection. In addition there are some images that have been provided by Shipping Companies and private photographers or collectors. Credit is given to all contributors. However, there are some photographs provided to me without details regarding the photographer/owner concerned. I hereby invite if owners of these images would be so kind to make them-selves known to me (my email address may be found on only), in order that due credit may be given. I know what it is like, I have seen a multitude of my own photographs on other sites, yet these individuals either refuse to provide credit or remove them when asked, knowing full well that there is no legal comeback when it comes to the net. However, let us show these charlatans up and do the right thing at all times and give credit where credit is due!

This notice covers all pages, although, and I have done my best to ensure that all photographs are duly credited and that this notice is displaced on each page, that is, when a page is updated!
