Small, iron-hulled casemate ironclads with a ram bow, one funnel and two masts, and rigged as brigantines. There was a partial double bottom. The 4 229mm 12.5t Armstrong ML guns were in casemates on the main deck amidships. The sides were cut away so that each gun could fire both ahead and astern on restricted arcs. Both were reconstructed by Ansaldo between 1903 and 1906, when the ends were cut down and they were rearmed. They were reboilered with cyl boilers but retained their existing engines and armour. They received a CT and were fitted with a military mast amidships.
