Built in 1925 in Glasgow, after being acquired by the Italian Line in 1932, the Conte Biancamano was transferred to the South America service. In 1934, it served as a troopship for the Italian Navy. Captured by the USA during WW II, it was used as an American troopship. In 1948, it became the first passenger ship to be refurbished in post-war Italy. Its interior renovations were a collaboration of artists such as Massimo Campigli, Mario Sironi, Roberto Crippa, Gustavo Pulitzer and Giò Ponti. After renovation, it was reintroduced into service along the North and South American routes. In 1961, it began a three-year process of being stripped and reassembled for the Milan National Museum of Science and Technology.
