This is our Ground Zero - Genoa mayor

City not on its knees says Bucci

"The collapse of the Morandi was a terrible tragedy for us Genoese," Bucci said before a minute's silence for the victims.
    "Like Ground Zero for New York, a city that was capable of emerging from disaster very well.
    "We want to do the same thing.
