  • There is a legend about the ponte Fabricio also known as the "ponte quattro capi" for the following legend. It is said that towards the end of 1500, Sixtus V decided to operate the bridge renovation, and made to Commission the work in four architects. These architects, however, put a strain on the Pontiff to causes of their constant bickering. Thus Sixtus V, considered very severe, he waited patiently for the restoration came to an end, then captured the four architects and had them executed right there, on the same bridge that they were busily to restore. According to legend, Sixtus V had put on the ponte Fabricio two sculptures, representing the faces of four architects, sculptures placed on deck. Each of the 4 heads pointing indignantly shoulders to the other three, although they are part of a single statue: and so those architects who were in discord in life, now I am condemned for eternity to share the same space.
