Did Regia Marina vessels have crests? Looking for one belonging to Caio Duilio...

Hello!  I call upon the community's help again for this question.  I saw this on the Internet and I was curious which Caio Duilio this is from.  While Caio Duilio was a battleship during WW2 and later served in the modern Italian Navy, there was also an ironclad, a helicopter cruiser, and a destroyer all created under this name.  The item is definitely old-looking and is actually quite large, but this could be due to poor craftsmanship though...

The seller and I aren't sure about this crest's origins.

Thanks!  The crest is shown below.

That's what I kinda think as well...because of the missiles.

My guess would be on the Helo Cruiser as well, the missiles being the only thing to go off of.

 

I honestly don't recall how widely used Crests were in the RM, but the MMI currently does. I'm staring at Caio Duilio's (the DDG) right now, which looks kind of similar in imagery, except instead of missiles the ship itself is pictured.

 

The carrier Garibaldi has one that shows literally every ship in the past that's shared the name (plus a likeness of Garibaldi himself).
