      Cypriot ship wrecked close to the island of Pianosa on March 11th 1986. In the hold 695 tons of "chemical waste" as it is reported in the Casualty Returns of the Lloyd's of London. The vessel was controlled by Saint George Shipping, a company based in Piraeus in Greece. According to the reconstruction of the incident made by Italian environmental NGO Legambiente, the ship left from the port La Spezia on February 2nd, then stopped in Alexandria, and Greece, and left again, having changed its name in the meanwhile. According to the testimony of Fernando Mengoni, doctor of the health service of the city Foggia quoted in the report produced by Legambiente "The hold of the ship turns out to be open: the part of the visible cargo to the inspection results fromed by a strongly smelly substance slush of colour, with wide frothy zones and in evident state of fermentation and putrefaction". The authorities did not intervene to remove the wreckage.

                              Maltese cargo ship of 3825 tons, gross tonnage, launched in 1968. It was owned by Navitrans Maritime, a shipping company based in Athens. It sank 20 miles south of Reggio Calabria, off Cape Spartivento, on September 21st 1987, in very deep waters. The captain and the crew of the ship were convicted for fraud against the Lloyd's. An inquiry demonstrated anomalies in the cargo declaration. According to independent reports, the containers would have transported thorium, a radioactive metal. On the diary of Giorgio Comerio, the infamous broker of toxic waste, on the date of the sinking appears the note "lost the ship". The dossier "Affondamenti sospetti" (Suspicious sinkings) published by Italian environmental NGO Legambiente asserts that the whole crew disappeared after the sinking.

                                              Italian ro-ro ship launched in 1968 and owned by the powerful shipping company Ignazio Messina. It stranded on the beach of Formiciche near Amantea on the western coast of Calabria, Italy on December 14 1990, after having nearly sunk - officially as a consequence of leaks sprung in the hull. A number of journalist investigations, among which the one conducted by Riccardo Bocca of l'Espresso magazine have documented the highly suspicious character of the sinking. The crew abandoned with great hurry the ship when it was still possible to save it. The port authorities of Vibo Valentia recovered 17 containers in the hold, of the 25 which were present at the departure from Valletta, Malta. In the aftermath of the incident the owners of the ship employed Smit Tak, a Dutch company expert in dealing with cases of radioactive contamination. Caesium traces have been detected in the vicinity of the ship, and in different areas on the coast where it is suspected that the content of the Rosso has been illegally disposed after the accident. The dossier "Affondamenti Sospetti" (suspicious sinkings) published in 2009 by Italian environmental NGO Legambiente declares that "previously it had been rented by the Italian government to bring back from Lebanon to Italy 9532 drums of toxic waste exported illegally by Italian enterprises". In 1988 Giorgio Comerio, an entrepeneur involved in the traffic of toxic waste, had tried to purchase the ship in order to use for its infamous project of sea disposal of radioactive waste.
