History of Flaminio Bridge
Ponte Flaminio has become one of the latest creations of Roman architecture during the reign of Mussolini. Like many buildings, the bridge was the embodiment of the power, strength and uniqueness of Italy. The length of the bridge is more than 250 meters. The bridge is divided into 5 equal sections by arches. The main material is concrete. The carriageway of the bridge is lined with white travertine. Such color gives bridge lightness and nobility.
On both sides of the bridge, the pedestrian sidewalk lies. Cylindrical columns are installed along. On each of them there is a sculpture of an eagle. This bird has been a symbol of the Roman Empire for centuries. And now these stone timekeepers look at people passing by. A row of lanterns make walks on Flaminio Bridge more comfortable.
