What's new


REGIAMARINA started in 1996 here in the United States as a small site dedicated to the Heavy Cruiser Gorizia, the only survivor of its class to the disaster of Matapan. Over the years, as Web technology evolved and became more complex, we have always strived to favor content over presentation. Still, after so many years of adding new sections and material, and having reached over 1,300 Web pages and thousands of daily visitors, we decided to make radical changes to the Web site.

To favor the fast deployment of new content without having to code Web pages, we implement a CMS (Content Management System) which allows us to release new content we always publish in both English and Italian in a fraction of the time it used to take.

While we gained in the ability to manage such large subject matter, we had to forgo some of the previously existing features, especially those relying on Java technology. Although Java can be a great development platform, we found out that browser compatibility and load time were a real issue.

Since every single page of the old site has been replaced, bookmarked pages or pages referred to in outside links will no longer work. If you cannot find what you were looking for, please use the advance search function or the site index. This new search engine has access to all content and it is language sensitive in only searches text in the language you selected for your menu.

As we continue gathering new material, we hope you may find this site of use to you.
