T/N "MICHELANGELO" OF 1965

Postcard of one of the most beautiful passenger liners that ever existed, the Italian "MICHELANGELO" she was built in 1965 in Italy by Ansaldo Shipyards, she was 45.911 GRT and had a top speed of over 28 knots, she served ITALIAN LINE between 1965 and 1975, in 1977 she was sold to Iran, the ship ended her days in Pakistan in 1991 where she was scrapped, a sad ending for such an amazing lady, she could still be with us today, some ships are born to be unlucky, the MICHELANGELO and her sister RAFFAELLO were two of them. Please see video above for an amazing experience
