Rome, September 17 - The unprecedented engineering
feat of righting the Costa Concordia has restored Italy's image
after its shipwreck became an emblem of irresponsibility 20
months ago, Premier Enrico Letta said Tuesday.
"We have turned the page in the public image of our country
which, when the ship crashed, was one of ducking responsibility,
which, alas, went around the world," he told a press conference.
The January 2012 accident, which cost 32 lives, has been
widely attributed to a reckless manoeuvre by the ship's captain,
Francesco Schettino, dubbed 'captain coward' for abandoning
ship. He denies the accusations.
The global media also used the Concordia as a symbol for
Italy veering off course amid political and economic woes.
"We have proved that Italians can shoulder heavy
responsibilities," Letta said.
