After spending more than 600 days partially submerged near Isola del Giglio, Italy, the wreck of the Costa Concordia was successfully rolled upright last night. The cruise ship capsized after striking a reef on January 13, 2012, killing 32 passengers and crew members. The complex salvage operation, known as "parbuckling," was the largest and most expensive in history: It cost $800 million and involved months of preparation. The actual parbuckling took 19 hours, and when it was complete, the ship's horn sounded above the crowd's shouts and cheers. Gathered here are images from the past 613 days in Tuscany -- from the initial disaster to today's righting of the Costa Concordia.
