  Ponte dell'Accademia
by Cristian_Uluru

The modern Ponte dell'Accademia (Bridge of Accademy) connected S.Marco to Dorsoduro. During the 19th century the bridge was made with iron and it had got a different architecture. In the first period of the 20th century was announced a competition to build a new bridge in fron of Accademia Gallery and the winner project by Torres and Briazza (1933) was never realized but as the bridge was essential in this part of the Gran Canal was built the actual bridge that should have been temporary.
Engineer Miozzi, realized a structure that first was made with wood and later was reinforced with steel loosing its main peculiarity.
