Bolzano was a cruiser similar to Trento-class and in 1937 underwent to several modifications. She took part at numerous naval actions as Punta Stilo, Capo Teulada, Gaudo and Matapan. On August 13, 1942 was torpedoed and heavily damaged by the British submarine HMS Unbroken (P42). The cruiser was towed to Napoli and later to La Spezia for repairing. At the armistice was unable to sail to Malta where the Italian fleet was recovered, and on June 22, 1944 was sunken by Italians and British commando just outside La Spezia.
