“Amerigo Vespucci” by Unknown Author

1963: Departure of the “Amerigo Vespucci”, Italy

 The Amerigo Vespucci is a tall ship of the Marina Militare, named after the explorer Amerigo Vespucci. Its home port is La Spezia, Italy, and it is in use as a school ship. More

 I'm so sorry I couldn't find more info on  these B&W old photos and I can only say one thing with certainty, that this is the Amerigo Vespucci ship. Furthermore, location is probably the Naples port, although many on web say it's Egypt, but Egypt was most likely the destination. The date of photos taken is also uncertain (could be older) especially having in mind Italian invasion of Egypt , but that's pure speculation.
