Primer viaje en torno del globo

Sajjad rated it liked it Feb 20, At least one warship of the Italian Navy, a destroyer of the Navigatori class, was named after him in Open Preview See a Problem? Finally, and as noted by the editor, virtually no attention is paid to shipboard politics, even attempted mutinies, and the death of Magellan and members of his crew in battle is described laconically.

Anyonio were greatly surprised for it was Wednesday with us, and we could not see how we had made a mistake; for as I had always kept well, I had set down every day without any interruption.

Tre stelle politiche per questa interessantissima ma ostica Relazione sul primo viaggio intorno al mondo a opera di Antonio Pigafetta, gentiluomo vicentino che seguiva la spedizione spagnola di Ferdinando Magellano.

Pigafetta’s own text, while well-annotated by the editor, is atrocious–as atrocious as Magellan and his crew in their treatment of the peoples encountered in the circumnavigation.
