Miss Italy hopeful competes in memory of Costa victim mom


Florence, July 2 - The daughter of a woman killed
in the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster last year off the
Tuscan coast says she is vying to become Miss Italy in her
mother's memory.
Stefania Vincenzi, 18, survived the crash but still does
not know what became of her mother Maria Grazia Tricarichi who
is believed to have drowned in the January 2012 disaster that
killed 32.
Vincenzi said she entered the beauty pageant because that
was something her mother always wanted for her daughter.
"I pay tribute to a desire of my mother: we agreed that at
18-years-old I would take part in Miss Italy and she would
follow me step by step," said Vincenzi.
"I do everything as if she was still there".
Vincenzi, who lives in Priolo, Sicily, was saved by her
boyfriend when the cruise liner crashed on rocks off the island
of Giglio.
The captain of the cruise ship, Francesco Schettino,
allegedly brought the massive ship too close to the rocks as he
tried to "salute" local people.
He is now facing multiple criminal charges.
