    Description:

    Roman bridge in Rome, which carried the Via Nomentana over the Aniene (Latin: Anio) River. Having laid outside the city limits for most of its history, the picturesque bridge is noted for its medieval bridge tower, which served to protect this important northern approach to Rome. The still intact fabric of the main arch dates from the late Republican era. The lower part of the bridge tower dates, according to an unproven tradition, from the time of Pope Adrian I (772-795), while the imposing …

    Description:

    A five-arched marble bridge from the Roman period. The bridge features five semicircular arches with an average span length of ca. 8 m. Construction work started during Augustus’ reign and was finished under his successor Tiberius in 20 CE; an inscription thus calls the structure as “given by both emperors”. The bridge was the only crossing of the Marecchia not destroyed by the retreating German army during the Battle of Rimini. The bridge is still open to pedestrian and light v…

    Description:

    The bridge was finally put out of use by a catastrophic flood in 1668, which swept away much of the structure. It was subsequently abandoned and no more attempts were made to repair it. Since then, its surviving arches have successively collapsed or been demolished, and only four of the initial 22 arches remain intact today. The bridge’s construction was inspired by Saint Bénézet, a local shepherd boy who (according to tradition) was commanded by angels to build a bridge across the river….
