  Antonio Pigafetta Summary
Pigafetta was among the survivors, and at the behest of King Charles V, he wrote about his experiences in Primo viaggio inforno al globo terraqueo.
Antonio Pigafetta (c. 1491 – c. 1534), was an Italian navigator born in Vicenza.
During the trip, Pigafetta collected numerous data about geography, the climate, the flora, the fauna, and the inhabitants of the places that the expedition visited; his meticulous notes were to serve as invaluable documents to future explorers and cartographers, mainly due to his inclusion of nautical and linguistic data.

 FYI: Antonio Pigafetta, First Round-the-World PR Man - BBA Communications
Don Antonio, né Antonio Pigafetta, was born, circa 1498, to a patrician family in Vicenza, Italy.
After a sound early education, young Antonio wanted to travel (is this beginning to sound familiar?), to see what he described as "the very great and awful things of the ocean." He got a job as secretary to the Papal Ambassador to the Court of King Charles I, in Valladolid, Spain.
While at the Spanish Court reporting to Charles, Antonio passed his story to the Italian Pedagogue, Peter Martyr, who, in turn, instructed his acolyte, Maximillian of Translvania, the natural sone of the Cardinal Archbishop of Saltzburg, to write an account of the expedition in Latin for his father.

Antonio Pigafetta was his name, and his obsessive record-keeping gives scholars the chance to sail along with Ferdinand Magellan and hear all manner of shipboard gossip, without all the boring, official clutter that fills logbooks, such as course and wind direction and so forth.
Pigafetta was born sometime around 1491 in the Italian town of Vicenza, and could claim to be a citizen of the powerful city-state Venice, which controlled Vicenza.
Pigafetta, with an easy manner and an eye for the unusual, produced a very readable account of the first successful circumnavigation and gave readers a glimpse into the manners and customs of the native people encountered, as well as information on local flora and fauna.

Antonio Pigafetta, one of the few survivors, wrote the authoritative account of the journey in his stead.
In Pigafetta’s account, the European world first learned of Patagonia, and through his depiction was engendered the fascination which would draw Europeans to the region for centuries to come.
Although modern scholastic impressions of Pigafetta are not terribly favorable (Percy Adams calls the chronicler “superstitious and addicted to the marvelous, delighting to record wonders and exaggerations”), more contemporary audiences read Pigafetta with wonder, creating a martyr of Magellan and a hero-by-proxy of Pigafetta, whose fame far outstripped his actual literary merit.
