|WikiProject Italy||(Rated B-class, Mid-importance)|
This article is easily long enough and detailed enough to warrant no less than B-class. It has pictures, and goes beyond the prose content history of the navy to provide an extensive list of Italian ships, by class. However, I would think that if this article were to be improved at all, it would require significant expansion in just about every section, particularly in the pre-WWII sections. I realize that Italy was a newly formed nation at the end of the 19th century, and the navy was thus new as well, but surely there is more to be said about its activity before and during WWI than just a few sentences.

- I agree; I've added a piece on the origins of the RM; I got it mostly from the article on the Italian Wikipaedia Xyl 54 12:33, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:HMS Queen Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth-class battleship).jpg
The image Image:HMS Queen Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth-class battleship).jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check
- That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
- That this article is linked to from the image description page.
Someone has changed the words “Regia Marina” in this article to “Royal Navy” or “Italian Royal Navy” for some reason.
This is just confusing; there already is a "Royal Navy" in the English language, and it isn’t this one. And use of the term Regia Marina is a commonplace in reliable sources that cover the subject (Roskill springs to mind); most histories of the First and Second world war do the same.
So I’ve changed it back. Xyl 54 (talk) 23:30, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
