The Amerigo Vespucci is the sailer of the Italian Navy known as la nave più bella del mondo (the most beautiful vessel in the world).
With its eighty years of service, the Amerigo Vespucci has sailed the seas of the entire world and, after nearly two decades, is coming back to the United States.
Sailed from La Spezia on April 19, the Amerigo Vespucci is having its the first US stop in Boston, where it will be in the next few days.
With the pleasure of all of the Italians living in the big apple, the Amerigo Vespucci will arrive in New York on July 26, where it will charm the city that never sleeps until the 31st of the same month.
“E’ la nave più bella del mondo (It’s the most beautiful vessel in the world)” was the phrase that in 1962 the Italian Navy received from the crew of the USS Independence aircraft carrier when at the request “Chi siete? (Who are you?)” the members of the sailer responded “La nave scuola Amerigo Vespucci (The school-vessel Amerigo Vespucci)”. The Americans, thus, replied with the famous phrase “Siete la nave più bella del mondo (You are the most beautiful vessel in the world)”.
And it is true, the Amerigo Vespucci e’ la nave più bella del mondo, and these photos – that will give us company during the week that separates us from its arrival in New York City, can only demonstrate its beauty, majesty, and grandeur.
