The Amerigo Vespucci
The ship Amerigo Vespucci has been planned, and it was constructed in the Regal Shipyard of Castellammare di Stabia (Napoli - Italy), 12th May 1930.
It has been launched on 22th February 1931 and it has commissioned on July of the same year. The first motto “For the Native land and the King” has been replaced in the 1946 with “Solid in the fury of the winds and of the events” (exactly: “Saldi nella furia dei venti e degli eventi”), and later, in the 1978, it has been changed once more with “not who begin but who perseveres” (exactly: “Non chi comincia ma quel che persevera”).
The ship Amerigo Vespucci is, instead, still active. It belongs to the Italian Navy, and it is used like school ship for the Cadet, Military Official, during their first year of Naval Academy.
The first Training Cruise was happened on 4th July 1931. The Commander was the Captain Augusto Radicati di Marmorito. Its first travel was directed to North Europe.

It slips majestic… silent,
with the calm of the strong,
always ahead,
caressed from the waves…
letting the wind pushes it
that swell the immense sails!
