Italian naval training vessel, Palinuro, will be at anchor in Argostoli from 07-10 September. Originally named  Commandant Louis Richard the ship was built in 1934 in the Dubigeon Shipyards in Nantes, France, for a French company and served in the cod fishing trade off Newfoundland. After World War II the ship was purchased, in 1950, by the Italian Navy as a replacement for the Cristoforo Colombo training ship which had been handed to the USSR as part of war reparations. Renamed the Palinuro, the ship entered service with the Italian Navy on 16 July, 1955.

In Roman mythology Palinurus was one of the Aeneads, Trojans who escaped the fall of Troy along with Aeneas. They set sail for Italy with Palinurus as helmsman. Along the way Palinurus was the sacrificial crew member demanded by the gods to ensure safe passage for the rest. When the Aeneads eventually reached Italy they became forefathers of the Romans.

The Palinuro is open to visitors as follows:

Friday, 07 September: 16:00 - 19:00
Saturday, 08 September: 10:00 - 12:00
Sunday, 09 September: 10:00 - 12:00 and 16:00 - 18:00

Actually it looks very impressive even to a landlubber like me.
