The Conte di Cavour class battleships were dreadnoughts built by the Italian navy for use in World War I (however, none fought the war). There were only 3 of these dreadnoughts built, the Conte di Cavour, the Giulio Cesare and the Leonardo da Vinci. The battleships were built in response to the French building their Courbet-class battleships. The Leonardo da Vinci was sunk by a mine in 1916, leaving 2 ships. The two ships (the Conte di Cavour and the Giulio Cesare) were refitted in the years 1933-1937. The two ships saw action during World War 2. The Conte di Cavour was sunk during the Battle of Taranto, and the Giulio Cesare was after being hit by a mine.
