Every time I am in Italy, memories take me back to 1976 when I sailed on the fabulous "GUGLIELMO MARCONI". This amazing ship was built in 1963 and until 1976 was operated by Lloyd Triestino on the Australian route together with her sister ship GALILEO GALILEI, in 1976 she was transferred to the ITALIA LINE for the river plate service, she was companion of another legendary liner, the CRISTOFORO COLOMBO, the service was short lived and just over one year later she was withdrawn from service, periods of lay up and different cruising operators followed until 2001 when she was sold for scrap, she remains to this day as my favourite passenger ship ever, for further information follow my blog dedicated to the ship here
