Ship history

This is an exact scale model of the famous school ship of the Italian Navy. She was planned by lieutenant colonel Francesco Rotundi, following the trends of sailing warships. She was launched in 1931 at the Navy ship yards of Castellammare di Staia Naples.

In the late 1920s, the Italian navy began construction of two ships for training their officer cadets at Sea, Cristoforo Colombo and Amerigo Vespucci. The design chosen was that of a seventy-four-gun frigate, though they had steel hulls and carried double top gallants, auxiliary power, and other modern devices.
Amerigo Vespucci Ship was named for the Florentine explorer for whom the sixteenth century German cartographer Martin Waldseemuller, named the newly discovered land masses to the West.
Her full lines are in sharp contrast to the majority of sail-training vessels. A letter from a Norwegian submarine commander having encountered the two sister ships reads as follows:
Following the Second World War, her sister ship was acquired by the Soviet Union. Amerigo Vespucci resumed her sail-training mission for the Italian Navy well into the 1990s.
