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.
Many years ago, to favor the fast deployment of new content without having to code Web pages, we implement a Swiss CMS (Content Management System) which allowed us to release new content – we used to publish in both English and Italian – somewhat more easily than coding HTML pages. However, we have now switched to WordPress and have opted to only publish in English. Eventually, in the future, we will also try to republish all the material in Italian.
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.
As we continue gathering new material, we hope you may find this site of use to you.
