Rome: A Rome university professor is facing a disciplinary hearing after inviting the captain of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner to lecture students on emergency procedures.

The dean of Rome’s Sapienza University, Luigi Frati, voiced anger on Wednesday at the professor’s decision to invite Captain Francesco Schettino to give a seminar, calling it an “inappropriate and unworthy choice.” Mr Frati said he was turning the matter over to an ethics committee.

The university dismissed the “pathetic excuses” offered by the professor, Vincenzo Mastronardi, when confronted by the dean.
