  • The Roman bridge of Savignano sul Rubicone is the most famous monument of the city that is the symbol itself. The exact date of construction is unknown, but it goes back certainly to the Republican era, although some historians would shift the bridge construction to the Principality of Augustus. The bridge consists of three large stone arches, resting on two mighty pillars. The whole is formed by large blocks of stone from Istria, a compact and resistant limestone that is not located on site and who then allegedly was transported by sea. It's almost 25 meters long altogether by shore to shore, the three arches have a width of 7 meters and a height of 10 meters. Over the centuries the bridge underwent numerous alterations. In 1450 Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta made remove the straps or side railings using blocks of stone as a material for construction of the Tempio Malatestiano in Rimini. The Roman bridge was blown up during the German retreat in the context of World War II in September 1944 ... Fortunately the stone blocks were recovered and reused for reconstruction carried out between 1963 and 1965, a fine statue of Julius Caesar stands adjacent to the bridge and it's up to recall a glorious page of history here has been written in January of 49 BC. Since then, "passing the Rubicon" entered the collective imagination as a term which means "to make an important decision, irrevocable, making a choice of no return". Some historians believe that the famous phrase "Alea iacta est" uttered by Julius Caesar was called before moving in arms the Rubicon and then enter into Italy proper, while other equally authoritative sources claim that the phrase has been uttered in today's Piazza Tre Martiri, Rimini. However, the fact remains that here over 2000 years ago has passed the history with a capital S.

  • If you are on via Emilia at Savignano sul Rubicone towards Rimini on entering the city you can admire the Roman bridge (1st century AD), which connects the two banks of the river Rubicon. If you have time you can go below deck and admire the beauty of the three large stone arches, resting on two central pillars. The whole is formed by large blocks of stone from Istria, which does not exist in the area, and therefore presumably was imported by sea.
