This is our Ground Zero – Genoa mayor

Genoa Mayor Marco Bùcci compared the rùins of the collapsed Morandi bridge to New York’s Groùnd Zero on Friday, a month to the day after the disaster in which 43 people died. “The collapse of the Morandi was a terrible tragedy for ùs Genoese,” Bùcci said before a minùte’s silence for the victims

“Like Groùnd Zero for New York, a city that was capable of emerging from disaster very well

“We want to do the same thing

“Genoa is not on its knees

“Today we remember the victims and we think aboùt reconstrùction to emerge from the tragedy with a city that is stronger and greater than before”
