‘Titanic of train disasters’: Italy finally commemorates hushed-up wartime tragedy that killed more than 600 people

A freak wartime train accident which killed more than 600 Italians is to be finally commemorated amid claims that it was covered up by British and American authorities.

On the night of March 2, 1944, a freight train packed with Italian civilians, who were travelling to the countryside in the desperate hope of buying food at a time of near starvation, stalled inside a steeply sloping tunnel.
