Overview
 
The largest and most powerful warships ever built in Italy, the battleships of the Littorio class, were the first 35,000 tonners to come under the provisions of the Washington Treaty.  Although the Washington Navel Conference of 1922 gave Italy the authority to build up to 182,800 tons of new capital ships (including 70,000 tons prior to 1932), the Italians waited more than a decade before beginning construction.  

  The RN Vittorio Veneto was commissioned 1 May 1940.  Her first mission of World War II came 31 August 1940 as part of the concentration of the Italian battleships to put to sea during the war.
