Bridge of the Scalzi

Ponte degli ScalziThe bridge of Scalzi is also called the Railway Bridge because it is near the railway station, Santa Lucia.  It was built in 1934 by engineer Eugenio Miozzi.


The design is inspired by the Rialto Bridge. It is a single arch and made entirely from Istrian stone. It substituted an old bridge built by the Austrians in 1858.  It is one of the four bridges that cross the Grand Canal along with the Rialto Bridge, the Accademia Bridge and the new Calatrava Bridge.
