Juan Vespucio

Juan Vespucio (c. 1460 – after 1524) was an Italian-Spanish geographer, cartographer and cosmographer. He was born in Florence in around 1460. With his uncle Americo, he moved to Seville in Spain, where he was employed as a cartographer and cosmographer.[1] In 1524, he was called upon as an expert to attend a board meeting between representatives of Spain and Portugal at the Old Town Hall in Badajoz to clarify the status of their territorial arrangements, attended by the likes of Hernando Colón, Sebastián Caboto, Juan Sebastián Elcano, Diego Ribeiro and Esteban Gómez.[2]
