New Genoa bridge reopens, two years after deadly collapse

Two years after part of Genoa’s Morandi motorway bridge collapsed, killing 43 people, a new structure was opened in its place on Monday. The new Genoa San Giorgio bridge, designed by local architect Renzo Piano, was inaugurated in a ceremony which included a flyover and was attended by the president, Sergio Mattarella, and the prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, who called the new structure the result of "Italian genius". The celebrations have been criticised by victims’ families who declined to attend but had a private meeting with Mattarella beforehand
