The event will be broadcast live on Italian state television channel RAI 3 and pay tribute to the Liguria region, which experienced the tragic collapse of the original bridge in August 2018.

Organised by Webuild (Salini Impregilo) and Fincantieri – the companies that formed the PerGenova JV behind the fast-tracked project –  the concert will comprise the music of Ludwig van Beethoven performed by the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and conducted by Antonio Pappano.

The final span of the new bridge was installed on 29 April
