The history of the Augustus began sixty years ago, the 8th of March 1949, when the so called Cantieri Riuniti dell'Adriatico (United Boatyards of the Adriatic Sea) (CRDA),
received the order to build five units for their ports and the Finmare Group.
The two most prestigious ships assigned to the Giulian group would have been the two twin transatlantic dedicated to the Italy-South America line, christen Giulio Cesare and Augustus.
The two huge ships were the first Italian post-war transatlantic and they represented the renewal of the Italian Mercantile Marine after the destruction caused by the Second World War when over 90% of the Italian fleet went lost.
They were designed by the famous carenista Nicolò Costanzi and their line would have been inspirational for the Ansaldo when they built their own transatlantic dedicated to the North American line, Andrea Doria and Cristoforo Colombo.
The interior of this ship are for sure examples of the outstanding work of great Italian architects as Boico, Cervi, Frandoli and Nordio, but above all of the genius of Pulitzer Finali.
The various areas of this transatlantic were embellished by works of artists of the caliber of Marcello Mascherini, Anthony Music and Tranquillo Marangoni.
