Concordia by Alessandro Gandolfi
On the evening of 13 January 2012, the Costa Concordia, a cruise ship with 4229 people on board, struck shallow water near the island of Giglio. Within three hours it had sunk sideways to the bottom, a few metres from the coast. This was the largest ever cruise ship to sink, and the disaster claimed 32 lives. But what is left of that event, 10 years on?
Today the Costa Concordia no longer exists as its name has been cancelled from the Italian shipping register. The wreck, which is a symbol of the drama, was hauled up and dismantled, and most of the parts were recycled: thousands of tonnes of steel from the ship now form the foundations of Italian bridges and buildings. But traces of the Concordia can be found everywhere. These are relics that tell stories.
