Costa Concordia - other land-based perspectives
On 13 January 2012 at about 9:45 p.m., in calm seas and overcast weather, under command of Captain Francesco Schettino, Costa Concordia struck a rock in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the eastern shore of Isola del Giglio, on the western coast of Italy about 100 km (62 mi) northwest of Rome.
On 17 September 2013, Costa Concordia was winched upright. The next stage is to assess and repair damage to the vessel before it will be floated away to an Italian dock to be scrapped although the tow is unlikely until Spring 2014.
