Rotated by tugboats, the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner is being readied for its final voyage.

The ship was set to be towed Wednesday from Giglio Island, where it struck a reef and capsized in January 2012, killing 32 people.

The tugs and a dozen other boats will guide the crippled ship on a journey of about five days to Genoa, the mainland port where the vessel will be scrapped.

A daring engineering operation set the Concordia upright last September in preparation for removal.

After the ship leaves Giglio's port, another search will be launched for the one victim that was never found.

The Concordia's captain is on trial for multiple manslaughter, causing the wreck and abandoning ship before all aboard were evacuated.
