Bridge collapses at Genoa, dozens of dead.

Sad days my friends.
This is what happened 24 hours ago at Genova (Genoa):


this is "Morandi bridge" (90 meters high, 1200 meters long)



this is what happened















The central span of the cable-stayed bridge collapsed (red part of the pic)




more than 30 cars and trucks falled for 40 meters, there are 39 dead, dozens of missing and dozens of wounded.

There are many "Morandi" bidges all around the world, all built in concrete in the years 60's.

After two years from this tragedy

a new, beautiful bridge projected by my "colleague"() Renzo Piano has been built.
Now Genova is connected again.
