Famous Bridge of wood on the river Brenta, it lay on 4 pieces, it was known since 1209. It is a very old bridge despite it was destroyed more times by the river (brentane) and wars (War of Cambrai 1511 and builded again by Palladio in 1569/70). In 1915 it rexisted to the Austrian bombs! and with the song singed by Italians soldier (they singed "Sul Ponte di Bassano, noi ci darem la mano, per un bacin d'amor.....= In the Bridge of Bassano, we will give each other the hands, for a kiss of love") it wins the war! It was destroyed another time in the second world war, but eroically and tenaciously builded again by the famous and gloriousus soldiers ALPINI and since that time now the bridge is known as PONTE DEGLI ALPINI, the soldiers Alpini said "dura volontÓ alpina=hard and strong alps-volunty ".
Any time the bridge was builded again it was builded anytime equally as before.
