More victims of the Genoa bridge collapse were laid to rest today as relatives attended the state funeral amid growing anger in Italy over the disaster which claimed so many lives. Families of 18 of the 38 victims gathered for the funeral service in the city centre where coffins were lined up before the alter draped in white roses.
But tears have turned to anger as mourners demand to know how the tragedy was allowed to happen after the emergence of a report by motorway operator Autostrade warning about the condition of the bridge just last year. Loud boos and jeers were heard as Italy’s former leader Maurizio Martina arrived for the service. His Democratic Party was in charge until last year’s election. In contrast, deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini was cheered along with Italian president Sergio Mattarella and transport minister Danilo Toninelli who arrived earlier in the day along with raft of other dignitaries, prominent figures and members of the Genoa football team.
