Scalzi bridge

Old Austrian bridge, on this part of Gran Canal, represented an age that was finishing.

In this period of deep transformation, project by engineer Eugenio Miozzi (1931-2) was chosen to subsitute the rectilinear iron bridge (all the iron bridges in Venice had been built by Austrians).

This bridge clearly borrows the main characteristics of Rialto bridge except for the shop lines, here absentees: one arch and made with white stone.
In this way, the bridge can dash free on the Gran Canal.
