Shadows of Florence: Ponte Santa Trinita

Ponte Santa Trinita, Florence

Ponte Santa Trinita is one of the most celebrated and elegant bridges in the world. Built in 1567 by the Florentine architect Bartolomeo Ammannati, Ponte Santa Trinita has always been overshadowed by its more illustrius neighbor Ponte Vecchio. On 8 August 1944, the bridge was destroyed during the German army’s retreat, but reconstructed in 1958 with stones taken from the original quarry.

Thanks to the photographer Mauro Macherelli.
