The Reggio has been, with to sistership the San Francesco di Paola, one of the beautifulr ships that the Italian railroads have never had. Constructed in 1960 to Riva Trigoso (Genoa), it has made service in the Strait of Messina and irregularly between Civitavecchia and Golfo Aranci.
Sold in 1990 for being used after restaurant for the Olympic Games its existence in unusual and little fortunate way has ended. I do not hide that to see these photos it has made me to cry. I was much becoming attached to the ships Reggio and San Francesco di Paola.
I ask You if you can publish of the other photos of these two important ships for me therefore. After the demolition of the San Francesco di Paola, the sinking of Cariddi (1932-2006) and the Reggio, now remains only the 3 ships of the Iginia class.
King regards,
Enzo

Yes I think so, another member called "Henzo" confirm that in another post but he says she was scraped in Alang I think Reggio was luckier than San Franccesco, a pity isn´t it?

This vessel operated in Messina as train carriage cargo. In '90 she was in Barcelona abandoned by the owner, I'm not sure why. I've heard different histories about it. Someone says that the vessel was brought to transforming her in a sort of floating discotheque or something like that. However, after to get fire for seven times and after a heavy storm the vessel sank inside the port of Barcelona in the pier where at present is the Maremagnum shoping center and bisede the yacht port.I've also heard that the vessel sank due the works of that transformation. The ship remains for a long time, about a year, and the authoroties, because the celebration of the Olympics Games, removed her afloat. A Canadian company did it and after that she was towed to Islas Medes (Girona-Catalunya-Spain). Illes Medes is a protected area and the vessel makes her last trip to the bottom of the sea to becomes a sea biotope I think that is a romantic and honorable end. The issue is that they did it not too well and the ships due the the sunk process and the sea current of the area broke in two. In the village of L'Estartit there is a Bar called Reggio with a lot of pictures of Reggio hanged in the wall and ther is a diving center to. Maybe the friend who pass me that photos send me a video of the process.
