Grosseto, June 25 - The half-sunk Costa Concordia
that has been stranded off the coast of Tuscany since striking a
rock formation in January 2012 could be righted from its current
position this September, Italy's civil protection agency said
Tuesday.
"We will have a clearer idea of the timing after checks on
the submerged section and then know if the boat can leave the
(waters around) the island in November or March," Civil
Protection Department head Franco Gabrielli said on a visit to
the Island of Giglio.
The cruise ship hit a rock formation nearly a year and a
half ago, claiming 32 lives, after an allegedly rash manoeuvre
by captain Francesco Schettino to sail near Giglio Island to
"salute" local people.
It tilted onto its side and made salvage operations
difficult.
"The ship's removal is a priority. First its removal, then
its destination. My mandate is to remove this ship from Giglio,"
Gabrielli said.
