Bulldozers demolished an unsafe portion of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa on Thursday night following the collapse that killed at least 38 people.
Officials say it is unlikely any more survivors will be found after a major section of Italy's A10 highway collapsed during a storm at around 11:30 (09:30 GMT) on Tuesday.
The cause of the bridge is still being investigated. Prime Minister Giuseppe... Еще Conte has declared a 12 month state of emergency in the region, and pledged €5 million ($5.70 million) of government funds for the area.
Known as the viadotto Polcevera in Italian, it was inaugurated in 1967 and has been for years at the centre of the local debate over its safety.
