The pride of the Italian Navy, Amerigo Vespucci conjures up memories of men-of-war from two centuries ago. Riding high in the water, with triple decks indicated by painted stripes, Amerigo Vespucci is a gracious twentieth-century goodwill ambassador, as well as a symbol of Italy’s
global maritime heritage and tradition. Named for the great explorer and cartographer of the
seventeenth century, this elegant, full-rigged ship is a grand visitor to many ceremonial parades of sail. Since her launch, Amerigo Vespucci has been used to train junior officers of the Italian Navy.
