At the beginning of 1982, the first of these ships was put into active service and during the next three years, the remaining frigates of this class also entered in active service of the Italian Navy.

All Maestrale frigates are expected to be replaced by the new Bergamini class frigates (also known as FREMM) and there are currently only 3 in active service out of the 8 that were built.
