Description

Launch of the Augustus motor ship in the Sestri Ponente shipyard. The MN / Augustus was launched on 13 December 1926, commissioned by the Italian General Navigation. Godmother of the launch was Edda Mussolini, daughter of the head of the Italian government Benito Mussolini. At the time the Augustus was the largest motor ship in the world, with a length of 232.90 meters, 27.16 meters wide and with a gross tonnage of 32,652 tons. The speed it reached was also remarkable: 19 knots. After having traveled the routes of South America, in 1941, in time of war, it was requisitioned by the Italian Navy and transformed into the Sparrowhawk aircraft carrier. Due to the war difficulties, however, the aircraft carrier never became operational. In 1944 the Germans, to prevent the Allies from using the port of Genoa, towed the Sparviero, sinking it.
