A former mayor of Genoa, Marta Vincenzi, was sentenced on Monday to five years in prison in relation to a flooding that happened in the city on November 4th, 2011. Six people, including two children, died on that day, when the Foreggiano river overflew. Vincenzi was convicted for crimes including multiple culpable homicide and forgery, as she fabricated a false report on the floods in which the assessment of the events was modified in order to avoid responsibilities. Five other people were sentenced to different prison terms in the same trial. Prison terms ranged from 4 years and 9 months to one year and 4 months.
