Assimina at Genoa, Italy

Assimina at Genoa, Italy

Does anyone recognize this cargo-passenger liner seen moored at Genoa on a vintage postcard mailed in 1951? Presence of Costa's ANNA C narrows the timeframe to no earlier than 1947.
Thanks to the help of many, ID'd as the immune grant ship Assimina at Genoa, spring of 1951.

With such a very distinctive profile anyone who has a war time publication of merchant ship silouettes should have not trouble finding her name. An immigrant ship on the Aussie run and there cannot be that many that fill that bill.

Must be 1949 or later. Vessel of interest is alongside "Conte Grande" of 1928 which is evidently in service.. She is in her post WW2 rebuild state and commenced South American sailings in 1949

Google 'Australian Migrant Ships 1946-1977 by Peter Plowman and you will find a very detailed piece on the life of the Assimina/Dema though it seems she only did one imigrant trip to Oz.

Looking at the times the Assimina was in Genoa, the picture should have been taken in end of April-beginning of May 1951

Thanks for all of the help, everyone! I had every expectation that someone here had the answer, and even narrowing down the possible date range is a pleasant surprise.
