View of St. Peter’s Basilica from Ponte Garibaldi, in Rome.


Ponte Garibaldi

Arched river crossing built in the late 19th century, with pedestrian promenades at water level. The bridge was designed by architect Angelo Vescovali and built between 1884 and 1888; it was dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi, “Hero of Two Worlds” and one of the fathers of Italian unification. The bridge, enlarged in 1959, was released to facilitate the expansion of the town towards Trastevere. It has two metal spans, which lie on a central shaft and on two smaller shafts covered with travertine; it is 120 metres (390 ft) long.
