    In Italy, all eyes are on a theatre in Tuscany where a preliminary hearing is taking place into the deadly capsizing of the Costa Concordia cruise ship.

    The building is being used because it can hold more than 1,000 people.

    The man accused of causing the tragedy, Captain Francesco Schettino, is not among them. He remains under house arrest at home near Naples.
