Itlay and Atlantia on the First Anniversary of the Morandi Bridge Disaster

The Financial Times looks at Atlantia’s fortunes on the first anniversary of the Genoa tollway bridge collapse that claimed 43 lives. The article notes that “the disaster has become a symbol of the souring relationship between big business and politics under Italy’s populist, anti-establishment government,” but Atlantia has recently benefited from cracks in the government’s ruling coalition.

Reuters reports, Atlantia executives “made an early exit” from today’s official remembrance ceremony for the victims of the Morandi Bridge collapse after relatives told Italy’s prime minister they would leave if the executives stayed.
