      Real Photo but Hoax: Often called “The Last kiss”, this photo is sometimes shared as a picture from World War II or, less wrongly, captioned as the 1963 departure of the Amerigo Vespucci from Egypt. The real location is Italy. The 1963 route of this Italian training ship can be found online. Italian speakers can read the story of this trip by photographer Roberto Borra.
