The submarine Ammiraglio Cagni survived the war. The boat was stricken from the Navy list in february 1, 1948 and scrapped later in italian shipyards. Her conning tower, in very good conditione and with original radio-directionfinder, is now preserved as monument in Taranto submarine base, near the barrack of italian submarine school titled to "Rio Corazzi".
No uranium in the wreck of UIT 23, ex-italian Reginaldo Giuliani. The wreck was found by australian divers in seventies and they recovered some 50-60 tons of tin bars. The divers also recovered the periscope ring of the boat and they send it to mr. Emilio Filippi, my good friend and former crew member of Reginaldo Giuliani. Mr Filippi, born in Koblenz in 1921, was german mother tongue and in 1943 served as translator and liaison between german and italian when italy received 9 VII C U-boats from Kriegsmarine in 1943. So, mr. Filippi was transferred in Germany. Before, in italian-german submarine base of Bordeaux, he was used to take care admiral Doenitz dog's at Kernevel, Doenitz headquarter near Bordeaux. Mr Filippi died in 2007 and the Giuliani-UIT 23 periscope ring, transformed in memorabilia and preserved in a wood box, is now at the little museum of Taranto submarine base with a lot of memorabilia, artifacts and documents of italian submarine history.
