The Nicoloso da Recco was a Navigatori-classdestroyer built for the Royal Italian Navy (Regia Marina) in 1930. Named after the Italian Renaissance seaman Nicoloso da Recco, she served during World War II in which she was the sole survivor of her destroyer class. She shot down three Beaufort bombers while escorting a two-freighter convoy on 21 June 1942 off Tunisia. On 2 December 1942 Da Recco took part of the Battle of Skerki Bank, where an Italo-German convoy carrying troops and supplies to Libya was obliterated by Allied naval forces. Da Recco was the only vessel of her class to survive the war, and was eventually scrapped in July 1954.
