Vettor Pisani (ship) Wikipedia
Vettor Pisani was an Italian naval corvette that left Italy in 1882 for a three-year voyage round the world.
The voyage was a scientific exploration. Under the direction of Lieutenant Gaetano Chierchia (1850-1922) the officers made marine zoological collections, carried out surveying, deep-sea soundings and made abyssal thermometrical measurements. Gaetano Chierchia had been trained by Anton Dohrn, director of the Zoological Station at Naples.
