The capsized Costa Concordia has been pulled upright after remaining on its side in waters off Tuscany for the past 20 months.

This time-lapse shows the 19-hour process condensed into an 81-second video.

The Concordia struck a reef near Giglio Island the night of Jan. 13, 2012, took on water through a 70-meter (230-foot) gash in its hull and capsized just outside the harbor. Thirty-two of the 4,200 passengers and crew members died.

Information from The Associated Press was used for this report.
