About Builders
 Cantieri Riuniti Dell´ Adriatico CRDA, Trieste & Monfalcone
Cantieri Riuniti dell' Adriatico was founded in 1930 from the merger between Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino (Trieste) and Cantiere Navale Triestino (Monfalcone). CRDA built cruisers, submarines and battleships for the Italian Navy. After the wars it remained in business and focused partly on building cruise liners. Nowadays (2010) the yard is still in operation but is owned since 1984 by Fincantieri Group.
