|The beautiful Italian Liner - Andrea Doria.|
On the night of July 25, 1956, at 11:10 PM, the Italian ocean liner SS Andrea Doria was struck by the Swedish ship MS Stockholm in heavy fog off the coast of Nantucket. The ice-strengthened bow of the Stockholm T-boned the Andrea Doria and her sharp prow deeply penetrated the glorious liner. Taking on water almost immediately, the ship began to list and took 11 hours to roll on her side and sink under the waves.
