It's three years away, but here's a British Pathe video from when HMS Howe and HMS Anson were finished and started service. Obviously very propaganda-like but always great to see real footage of ships, and how they manage to get them from mooring to the open sea.

This was the so-called "H Review" (Rivista H), done in honour of Hitler's visit in Italy. It pretty much involved most of the Italian naval forces, and no less than 85 submarines were present.

There has been some discussion about it, in retrospective. Some find it an impressive show of force, some accuse the Regia Marina of having fallen victim to the show business and having put on an "equestrian show".

An Italian admiral present wrote that "M. seemed satisfied, H. not that interested, and his chief sailor [likely Admiral Raeder] managed only to ask us wheter we do these kind of things with bad weather.".
