The Fleets

Navigazione Generale Italiana Line

Navigazione Generale Italiana was formed in 1881 by the amalgamation of I & V.Florio of Palermo and R.Rubattino of Genoa. Besides services to the USA and Canada, they ran to Mediterranean and Black Sea ports, India, the Far East and South America. In 1885 they took over Soc.Italiana di Transporti Marittimi Raggio & Co. and Soc. Rocco Piaggio & Figli. By 1901 NGI had taken control of La Veloce and in 1924 liquidated that company. In 1910 they purchased a controlling interest in Lloyd Italiano. The same year the Societa Nationale del Servizi Marittimi was formed and NGI transferred most of their ships to this company. This left them with only 19 ships and the North and South American routes. In 1921 Transoceanica Societa Italiana di Navigazione and Societa Commerciale Italiana and their fleets were absorbed into NGI and in 1932 NGI and Lloyd Sabaudo, with Cosulich Line combined to form a new company named ITALIA.
