The Michelangelo and Raffaello, athough identical in respect of their hulls and machinery, were totally different in their internal furnishing. With their history of both light and shade, the two ships were in effect a representation of the Italy of those years and whoever set foot on board could, immediately discern the soul of the nation. Together with the already mentioned architects, the most notable artists of the time worked on the ships: abstract artists such as Capogrossi, Ridolfi, Corpora, Turcato, Baldan, Santomaso, Alfieri; neo-surrealists such as Severini, Sciltian, Dova, Pirandello; the figuratives Mascherini, Seibezzi, Cadorin, Leonor Fini, Gentilini, Omiccioli, Maccari…….
Public rooms, cabins and even the crew areas were studded with a mass of artworks well attuned to the internal architecture: about on the Michelangelo and on the Raffaello, sufficient to warrant a museum-like catalogue of the works on board.
Metamorfosi : Co La Loro Versione Nell'italiana Favella. Li Primi Cinque Libri, Volume 1...
Television became the obsession of the Italians, telling of John F. We looked also to the skies and the moon. Among the luminaries of this new world were Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong. Television and cinema embarked on the Italia flagships. It was the swan song, all-consuming but inexorable, of a world which was destined to disappear. An era was coming to an end with light-hearted cruises and fearsome storms. I n , when construction of the Michelangelo and Raffaello began, Alitalia inaugurated the first service linking Italy and the United States by the new DC8 jumbo jet.
Already, by , the worldwide public had made its preference clear for the airliner rather than the ocean liner; and quickly a significant number of Italians came to prefer a crossing to New York in 8 hours on a jet rather than in 8 days on a ship. At the very time when the Michelangelo and Raffaello entered service, the passenger traffic by sea was already crumbling, not least because the cost of an air ticket was less.
The oil crisis of delivered the coup de grace to the two liners, which were among the most costly not only to operate but also to transform into cruise ships. In , after just ten years of fleeting glory, they were laid up side by side in the Bay of Portovenere, close to the voracious shipbreaking yards of La Spezia, which had made their fortune by dismantling so many passenger ships.
Metamorfosi: needing to swim its own way in a sea of Italian atmospheric black metal
The destiny of the two flagships seemed to be ordained: to be cut into pieces and dispatched to be melted down for less noble but more practical and profitable purposes. Fate, however, decreed otherwise. The Michelangelo and Raffaello eventually became part of a commercial deal with the Iranian government and made their final voyage to the Persian Gulf where, for some years, they were employed as floating barracks.
It was thanks to a man from Monfalcone, Egone Missio, a retired director of the shipyard who was acting as consultant to the Home Lines, that the contract was awarded to Monfalcone. The ship entered service in and would continue to sail until without ever changing her name. For almost half a century, the Oceanic was for the North American public the epitome of excellence in Caribbean cruising, so much so that the Bahamas would dedicate a commemorative stamp to this wonderful ship.
After Oceanic, the Monfalcone yard would produce another historic vessel, the Eugenio C.
This aerial photograph depicts the modernisation project of the establishment, which involved the substitution of the slipways with the current construction dock and, at its head, the prefabrication facilities for building the blocks of which a ship is now formed. At the west quay we see the Oceanic and the Sandalion; and, at the east quay, Guglielmo Marconi, the final passenger ship of the Lloyd Triestino which would be delivered on 30 October The Eugenio C. In the two decades which separated the building of the Eugenio C. At the end of this temporary phase, Monfalcone turned to establishing itself as the prime builder of cruise ships of the latest generation.
She was the first ship to emerge from the new building dock. The photograph shows her being floated out from the building dock on 4 March A trifle depressing with no other customers and an invasive, melodramatic TV programme going to at full volume. Had an excellent 4 course lunch here with an unending array of antipasti! Delicious and interesting food on offer here. My husband's great uncle brought us here for a meal. Massimo was wonderful in catering to all of us. The food was fresh, honest, and plentiful.
A great meal! Massimo is the best!

The local tipical plates are tasty and authentic I recommend the mixed antipasto as it has so many different tastes of foods and is quite filling. The pizzas are wonderful as is the arrosticini and other secondo plates. Massimo is I've been to Metamorfosi twice, late at night, and was pleasantly surprised both times by the quality and quantity of the food. It's not fast, but it's always superior. Best of all, Massimo lets you take the left-overs home!
