Jan 9th 2013 8:26AM Thank you, Candy. It really is a wonderful project. I think people will be surprised by how much the Gigliese basically ran the rescue operation and how much it still impacts them today.
Dec 21st 2012 9:58PM It's interesting that he says he was such a hero. When the people of Giglio were giving everything they had to help these people, he did nothing. My first hand account interviews show him as being scared and even arrogant when he came on the island. He went and got a shower and changed his clothes, then did interviews. All while the passengers from his ship were wet, freezing, in shock and searching everywhere for their loved ones. He never lifted a finger to help anyone. He gave his computer to the hotel owner while he was being interviewed, then got it back when he was done. Somehow, that computer was lost after that and has yet to be found. Doesn't sound like someone that has nothing to hide, does it? Such a shame that he will continue to traumatize these people with these lies he is going to publish. So sad.
