The road bridge, operated by Atlantia's motorway unit Autostrade per l'Italia, collapsed in the port city of Genoa on Aug. 14, 2018, killing 43 people and laying bare the dire state of Italy's crumbling infrastructure.
Prosecutors have also asked for Autostrade, engineering unit SPEA, former SPEA boss Antonino Galatà, and former transport ministry officials to be sent to trial, the sources said.
The prosecutors have decided to exclude from the trial request 10 suspects, on which further assessments and investigations will be carried out, the sources said.
