Schettino is charged with manslaughter, shipwreck and abandoning ship in the January 2012 grounding off Giglio. Thirty-two people died.
The trial was put back by a week due to a lawyers strike in Italy.
A video clip posted at the MailOnline shows Moldovan dancer Domnica Cemortan, who reportedly was on the bridge at the time of the accident, arriving for the trial. Identifying herself as a Costa Concordia passenger, she told reporters: 'I hope that all the truth will come out ... about the ship and about the people who died.'
