Architect says his viaduct will ‘last 1,000 years’
A design by Renzo Piano has been chosen by Italian authorities to replace the bridge that collapsed in August killing 43 people.
The architect offered to design a replacement at no cost after section of the 51-year-old Morandi motorway bridge in Genoa failed with devastating consequences.
This week the Italian contractor Salini Impregilo and shipbuilder Fincantieri, which won the rebuild job, appointed Piano as architect on the €200m project.
