Aquila (Italian for "Eagle") was an Italian aircraft carrier converted from the trans-Atlantic passenger liner SS Roma during World War II.

Work on Aquila began in late 1941 at the Ansaldo shipyard in Genoa and continued for the next two years. With the signing of the Italian armistice on 8 September 1943, however, all work was halted and the vessel remained unfinished. Aquila was eventually scrapped in 1952.

One of not too many WW2 era destroyers still preserved, in this case the Polish destroyer Blyskawica, which escaped to the UK and served throughout the War. Today she is a museum ship in Gydnia.
