The Costa Concordia is a ship. The ship stopped 6 months ago. 32 people died. The ship is still in Italy near the beach. People, who are on holiday in Italy, visit this place often.

People will try to take the ship away. First, they have to take a big stone from the ship.

The stone will stay on the island. It will be a memorial to people who died. 

On Friday, it will be 6 months after the accident. There will have a concert for people who died there.


Words from a higher level: still, memorial (a stone for people who died).
