It was one of the so called “aerei coloniali” (= airplanes for the colonies), intended chiefly for liaison duties, in the territories that Italy had in Eastern and Northern Africa. During the Thirties the most part of this kind of aircrafts had been built by “Caproni”.
With the loss of Ethiopia and Somalia and the negative prosecution of the war in Northern Africa, no one thought to build other prototypes of this aircraft.
