Italian authorities said Saturday that work to float the shipwrecked Costa Concordia so it can be towed away for scrapping can begin Monday. The cruise liner struck a reef when it came too close to Giglio Island in January 2012 and capsized, killing 32 people. After an engineering operation set the Concordia upright in September, crews fastened tanks to its flanks like water wings to float it off underwater platforms for towing to Genoa for scrapping. Concordia’s Italian captain is being tried for manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning ship.
