In the 2021 Guidelines of the Chief of Staff of the Navy, the intention to use the GARIBALDI aircraft carrier as a platform for launching satellites into orbit was confirmed. In particular, the document states that during this year the verification for the use of the ship in this task and the training of the personnel will begin.

Very long article in the Italian navy official magazine about their various work on space issues (other interesting stuff in there), pg47+ they talk about the Garibaldi plan...it's in Italian so beware.
