Franco Porcellacchia, leading the Ship Owner's technical team for the world's most biggest-ever marine salvage operation attends a press conference on September 12, 2013 at the Civil Protection headquarters in Rome, Italy. Salvage workers will attempt to raise Italy's Costa Concordia cruise ship on September 16, weather permitting, in an unprecedented $1.0-billion (752-million euro) operation, officials said. 'If weather conditions allow, the operation will start at 6:00 am (0400) GMT on September 16... This is an operation that has never been attempted before,' Franco Gabrielli, head of the civil protection agency which is overseeing the operation, said on September 12.
