The cruise liner Costa Concordia wrecked into the isola di Giglio, off the coast of Tuscany, on 13 January 2012. The ship then heeled over and partially capsized while its roughly 4,000 passengers were evacuating the ship. Thirty-two people died in the shipwreck.
Criminal trials and lawsuits began soon after the shipwreck. Five Costa Concordia crew members and company officials have been found guilty this week after plea bargains. Captain Francesco Schettino remains on trial and faces a stiff prison sentence if found guilty. Repubblica and the BBC reports on the trials.
The complex salvage operation to remove the Costa Concordia from the isola di Giglio still continues.
