Drame de Gênes: un pont pourtant qualifié depuis toujours de chef-d’œuvre

This handout file picture released by Studio Leoni on August 16, 2018 and taken in 1965 shows the construction of the Morandi motorway bridge in Genoa.

The collapse, which saw a vast stretch of the A10 freeway tumble on to railway lines in the northern port city, was the deadliest bridge failure in Italy for years, and the country's deputy transport minister warned the death toll could climb further. / AFP PHOTO / STUDIO LEONI / Handout / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY CREDIT "AFP PHOTO / HO / STUDIO LEONI" - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS ---
