Ship project history: Double hull submarines, designed by Eng Lt Cdr Virginio Cavallini, able to bear the maximum projected pressure (50m), provided with the strongest yet TT armament (in the Italian Navy) and also the first deck guns.

Modernizations: None.

Naval service: Galileo Ferraris beached, night of 27-28 November 1917, at Magnavacca (now Porto Garibaldi), by storm. Salvaged in January 1918, but she was too damaged to serve any longer, and was stricken in December 1919. Giacinto Pullino ran aground on the night of 30-31 July 1916, at Galiola Is (Quarnaro); was damaged by her crew; captured by the Austrians and sank while being towed to Pola. Raised on 28 February 1931 by the Italian Navy and scrapped in 1931.
