In three personal letters written to Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de'Medici Amerigo Vespucci reports on his voyages to the Atlantic coasts of South America. They belong to the hybrid genre of the account of a journey in epistolary form. From the analyse of the texts emerge, besides the stereotyped motifs and topoi due to the models of Marco Polo and Columbus, the typical scientific approach of Vespucci, his enthusiasm and wit and his exciting way of telling the story of the discovery of the new world.
