    Background: The 47,700-metric-ton supertanker "Agip Livorno" was launched at Monfalcone (near Trieste,) Italy, May 28. The keel was laid down only last January and the vessel has been built in the record time of 135 days - just over 4 months. She will join the tanker fleet of the big Italian oil enterprise "Ente Nazionale Idrocarburi".

    The giant tanker - some 700 feet in length - has all modern conveniences, including escalators from one part of the ship to another, air-conditioning, swimming pool and cinema.

    At Monfalcone to perform the launching ceremony were Signora Carla Gronchi, wife of the Italian President, and Archbishop Mr. Giacinto Ambrosi of Monfalcone.
