Notes: Another Foruminian public pick, Francesco Caracciolo was laid down at the start of WWI, but was not completed because of material shortages and low construction priority. She was finally launched after the war but ultimately broken up for scrap. She was designed to be a "fast battleship" contemporary to the Queen Elizabeth class. More like a battlecruiser of the period, the planned speed of 28 kts makes her a nice battleship to fit the Italian lineup between the rebuilt Cavour and Doria class BB's, and the modern Littorio class BBs.
History: Italy, a European country with a long Mediterranean coastline, has left a powerful mark on Western culture and cuisine. Its capital, Rome, is home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Other major cities include Florence, with Renaissance masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s "David" and Brunelleschi's Duomo; Venice, the city of canals; and Milan, Italy’s fashion capital.
