The toll of Genoa's bridge collapse rose to 43 Sunday as rescuers confirmed they had found the remains believed to be of a missing family, a day after Italy held a funeral for the disaster victims.Italy bid farewell to the victims, including several children, in Saturday's solemn funeral that was boycotted by a majority of the families, who resented the presence of politicians and derided the ceremony as "a farce".Shortly after the official ceremony, Autostrade announced it would make 500 million euros ($570 million) available to help those affected by the tragedy and rebuild the partially collapsed bridge.The government plans to strip Autostrade of all of its lucrative contracts, which total 3,020 kilometers of Italy's 7,000 km-long motorway network.
