On the night of July 25th, 1956, the Italian luxury liner "Andrea Doria" was struck by the Swedish liner "Stockholm" about 40 miles off Nantucket, and sank some 11 hours later. Among its passengers that awful night was 9-year-old Pierette Domenica Simpson, looking forward to arriving in America with her grandparents from their native Italy. Her book about the disaster is called "Alive on the Andrea Doria!"
