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.
