I think she was sister ship of SS OCEANIC of Home lines. The only difference are the funnels and superstructure. But at least the hull is equal in both ships

The Eugenio C was built for traffic between Genova-BuenosAires. Full speed reached 29 knots on trials.
The line was: Genova, Cannes, Barcelona, ​​Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro, Santos, Montevideo and Buenos Aires.

OCEANIC Home Line EUGENIO C. Costa Armatori

Both vessels were by same yard CR dell'Adriatico, Monfalcone. There were some features... as the style of the bow and the stern, but other than that the two vessels were completely different. The OCEANIC was some 27,644 grt, 782 ft. EUGENIO 30,536 grt, 713 ft. The machinery was similar, De Laval geared turbines of 60,500.

My information is Eugenio C was built just after OCEANIC. It was planned to build two sister ships but at the end Costa Line introduced some improvements in aesthetics and some changes in ship's particulars to obtain as result the Eugenio C.

Here bellow the original idea for Eugenio C, with simillar profile to OCEANIC.
