(Reuters) - People walk past the Moderno Theatre during the opening pre-trial hearing for the cruise liner Costa Concordia disaster in Grosseto March 3, 2012. Legal teams and relatives of victims of the capsized Costa Concordia began arriving at the theatre in the Tuscan town of Grosseto on Saturday, where the pre-trial hearing will begin to investigate the tragedy. Prosecutors have accused captain Francesco Schettino of causing the accident by sailing the multi-storey Costa Concordia too close to the Mediterranean island of Giglio in January, where it was torn open by rocks. He is accused of a string of charges including multiple manslaughter and abandoning ship before the evacuation of more than 4,200 passengers and crew.
