I thought that you had forgotten to mention her name when launched: Emanuele Accame. And, well, it is not mentioned in the text beneath the photo, but I now see it is in the list of keywords.

Emanuele, btw., is a male name in italy, and the name of the shipowner. He was born in Pietra Ligure in 1806, where he died in 1891, and became a prominent owner of wooden sailing vessels, and from 1889 on a fleet of steel sailing ships. Besides the Emanuele Accame, there was the Battinin Accame, and the Antioco Accame, all built at Pertusola, and the Caterina Accame, a product of the Cantiere Navale Ansaldo at Sestri Ponente.

Yes, and it has been there all the time? I must have become older and blinder than I am able to perceive through these smudgy glasses... Anyway, she is very light here, something that detracts from her good looks - a sailing ship generaly looks the best when down to her marks.
