On the Tuscan coast, a few metres from the harbour of the small island of Giglio, the Costa Concordia appears to have become part of the landscape. Precariously balanced on a reef since it ran aground on January 13, the wreckage still haunts the minds of the port’s inhabitants, who are gradually reclaiming their island. The regional nature reserve of Giglio lives at the islanders’ leisurely pace, only disturbed by summer’s tourists. However, since the sinking, Giglio has been making headlines around the world and the accident of the Costa Concordia could mark a turning point for the future of this haven of beauty. Anyway, one thing is certain: for the islanders, nothing will ever be the same.
