I had thought a while back I made an inquiry regarding Italian trailers, Including Fuel tanker trailers, I know they existed but not there nomenclature, or really the various models

Anyone have an idea about this?

I will need to see what I have. There are several books that likely answer this question, but I have yet to buy them.

There was, as I recall, a web sight that covered this, but as of yet, I cant seam to find it.

Looking for info on Italian Fuel Tank trailers.

And info on Italian Trailers used in North Africa.

Primarily for logistics support over distance.
 
Plenty of trucks in this link but I don't see any trailers:

someone just posted this in the Italian Militaria Collectors facebook page and it's apparently for sale. No idea of its use or authenticity, but pretty interesting none-the-less

This topic is certainly treated in the two tomes of "Gli autoveicoli tattici e logistici del Regio Esercito Italiano fino al 1943", but unluckily they haven't been uploaded to the Issuu page of the "Rivista Militare" (to be more precise, they are present, but the files uploaded are wrong, if anybody knows how to signal this mistake to the keeper of that page he should do it).

As far as I know the primary producers were Viberti, Bertoja, Pavesi and Bartoletti.

You can see some photos here:

Here there is a photo of a pigeon transporter:

Here instead there are some details about airless wheels used on trailers to save rubber (you can see some of them also in the link to the page of the Senato - Archivio Luce):
