what is the warship in the picture? I know many ships were broken up here, was this one next?
A quick guess, she looks to me as if she might be one of the Italian Impetuoso Class of destroyers - two ships built between 1952-6 - the first destroyers built after WW2. Looks as though she has already had a lot of topside gear removed. Hope that helps!!.

The cruiser in the photo is, or was, the Italian GIUSEPPE GARIBALDI, built at Trieste in 1936 with 9195 tons displ. and after WWII, during the '60s, converted to carry missiles.

Stricken from the Italian Navy on Nov.16, 1976.
