Ponte dei Bertoli

Designed by the architect Giacomo Tazzini in the fourth decade of the 19th century, the Ponte (Bridge) dei Bertoli owes its name to the family that owned the nearby terrains. The bridge was originally in wood, but after continuous flooding, the architect Tazzini had it rebuilt in the 19th century. The new bridge was in masonry with a ceppo (a local stone) covering and iron parapets. There was a single central pillar, allowing the water to flow freely.
