  • Era ruled the ancient Roman amphitheatre the Colosseum had no archetype is disintegrating original age, and also local people who said. But now the ruins and see value, many people visit. However, this bridge is not available. Another little plus want. It is like a haunted bridge.

  • It may seem strange but it was interesting to see this bridge showing the signs of time and history. And then along the Tiber many things have a special charm. though not always because of surrounding degradation.

  • The broken bridge as today is remembered is what remains of the bridge Emilio and is only one arch in the middle of the River Tiber well visible both from the southern tip of the island that the modern and shabby ponte palatino really bad. Personally I would give air and Visual the ponte Palatino and re-built in this monumental piece of history! The ruin is nice as it appears covered with shrubs and exposed to the waters of the Tiber and weathering. To enhance this monument I would study a beautiful lighting that enhances the beauty and power of the stone that resists the forces of nature. Metaphorically the bridge also represents what remains of the ancient history of Rome and its Empire: a ruin isolated in the River, with its beauty and its strength that defies history. A story that has lost touch with the contemporary, in fact the bridge is broken and it joins the two banks but that's where isolated with the waters lapping and represent the evolution of events. Basically Rome has been great and now his story is there in the middle of the river that passes. "PANTA RHEI": everything flows. Roma remain the "remains" and the eternal city has now forgotten monument emblematic of herself: a disconnected from the past and the present, a piece of human history that challenges the fate and destiny that leaves fragments of life, misery and magnitudes, there in the middle of nature that attempts to regain and erase the work of man. That's why it shouldn't be restored but only lit! The light should be the lure for the contemporary man to consider looking at the broken bridge and the admonition would be: this is what REMAINS of the Man, HOW MAJESTIC: a ruin in the middle of the river. It's as if in the distant future when our civilisation will be overtaken our successors to see the statue of liberty in New York half collapsed and partially destroyed that emerges from the water to recall a bygone civilization. Stop and think is good, without any contact with the two sides but just in the middle of the river leaving spend time is master of our destinies and decide what stays and what goes on the back burner.

  • Oldest stone bridge in Roma. Beautiful view of the Tiber river. A walk along the walking strip beside the river is very pleasant
  • A nice bridge on the Tiber river.
  • There is a beautiful view of the Tiber river. This was the oldest stone bridge in Rome
  • Broken bridge ancient Roman age for the water in full fury which at that point is particularly strong.
