The carrier entered into the Maritime Military Arsenal of Taranto on 18 december 2018 and the works started at the end of July 2019.

The Cavour aircraft carrier will face a preparatory training period for the next departure for the United States in the summer, where it will conduct some tests with the F-35B aircraft on board. These activities will represent the first important steps for achieving the Initial Operational Capacity of the aircraft carrier with its renewed Italian Navy Aviation capability.
