    HOMEWORK assistance... Confused... Amerigo Vespucci....

    Amerigo Vespucci was born Italian. He First sailed for Spain, then Portugal.... Why is it that in all of the paintings there is an Italian flag with the shield of the Italian Navy? 


    If you were going to make a poster and had to chose one flag... Which would it be????

    Poor Dara has been doing research and writing all weekend.... Sci. and S.S. projects due on the same day (Mon)... I sent her to bed... And told her I would find the artwork...

    The Sci Project is complete... The slogan she came up with was clever...
    ALUM-it all*
    "ALUM Does It ALL"
    * ALUM-it all proud distributor of the natural mineral Alum.

    So CUTE!

     Jenn, i have never heard of Amerigo Vespucci, so i went into google, found some interesting facts that you properly know, America was named after this exployer,  on his first voyage  he sailed under an italian flag in 1499, on his second voyage in 1501 he sailed under the Portuguese flag, he was the first to identify the NEW WORLD OF NTH. and  SOUTH AMERICA as separate from ASIA, ( until he died, Columbus thought he had reach Asia) A bit long winded but Vespucci  sailed under two different flags --- it is up to you to choose.

    Italian flag with The shield of the Italian Navy..

    This question has me confused. I'm lost as to what your looking for here. Sorry. 

    Jenn

    I need a flag that represents Amerigo Vespucci...
    HE was born Italian
    Sailed for both Spain and Portugal (never Italy)
    All of the paintings I see are with the Italian flag...
    Which seems strange.

    Hey Jenn,


    What about all three flags??

    Jenn

    I thought of that.. Then read the rubric.. It calls for One flag, on portrait and one map...
    doolittle

    Then I would go with the Italian Flag, a pic. of him and a map of the mediteranian sea that includes all three countries.

    I am getting sleepy.. Moving this to the answered side for help... xoxoxox

    try looking under the elizabethan era.co.uk
