By ,   May 13, 2015 ,   Accidents

Wrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner has made her final journey as she was towed to her last berth in order to be demolished.

The ship which ran aground near the Giglio island in 2012, killing 32 people, has been pulled 16 kilometres across Genoa, ten months after she was taken there to be dismantled.

Costa Concordia had to be stripped of enough material to allow her pass over the breakwater of port Prà Voltri, her final destination. It's an important moment for the ship which was the worst maritime disaster of Italy since the World War II.

The Costa Concordia accident caused controversy during Captain Francesco Schettino's the court case, who was sentenced to 16 years in jail for manslaughter, 5 for causing a shipwreck, 1 for abandoning the vessel, and an extra month for false information given to authorities after abandoning the ship before all 4,200 travelers were safely ashore.
