Italica
Collection D. Vila
        This medal was given or sold onboard the Cabo San Vicente to commemorate the century of the first owned steamer, the first Italica. She had also sails, to help when the wind was in the same direction, and in case the propulsion failed, that at that time was not uncommon. She was sold in 1883 to an Italian shipping company, and the second Italica took her place.
