I spent a year in Italy with my husband, Phil Reed, who was one of the engineers who raised the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship. This is a portrait of the two oldest “Titan guys.” Old friends who started every morning at 6 am at Cafe Ferraro sipping “Cappucino Americano.” About 3 years of working in a beautiful place.
