This bridge, unlike its neighbors (Sant'Angelo and the bridges on the island of Tiberina) is not very old. The bridge was designed by architect Ennio de Rossi in 1886 as part of a large-scale reconstruction plan for Rome after the unification of Italy. Marble sculptural groups on the bridge, installed according to the results of the 1908 concupes, are devoted to the same theme: "Freedom" by the sculptor Giovanni Nicollini, "Triumph of Victory" by Italo Griselli, "Unity of Italy by Cesare Reduzzi and even "Loyalty to the Constitution" by Giuseppe Romagnoli. On both sides there are large columns with bronze figures of the "Winged Victory". The pathos is off the scale. Like in Piazza Venezia.

The construction of the new bridge dedicated to King Vittorio Emanuele II was designed by the architect Ennio De Rossi in 1886 and was inaugurated 25 years later, on 6 June 1911, just in time for the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Unification of Italy.
The bridge, with three lowered circular arches, is made of masonry and is decorated, at the ends, by four high bases adorned with semi-columns on which rest four "Winged Victories" in bronze.
On the pillars of the central arch, on the other hand, there are four sculptural groups in travertine, signed by Reduzzi and Nicolini, symbolizing "the Unity of Italy", "Freedom", "Oppression Defeated" and "Fidelity to Statute ".
The bridge, 108 meters long and 20 meters wide, was built to connect the city of Rome to the Vatican.
Ideal for a romantic walk in the summer.
The view of the city and some of its iconic monuments from the bridge, which is located a short distance from the famous Castel Sant'Angelo, is simply spectacular.

Different to other bridges in Rome as there are numerous large sculptures on top of the pillars. Appears to be a busy through road as traffic was heavy around 09:00. We found it a great way to access the area just outside of Vatican City.

Great looking bridge from the side views bit very busy with traffic if standing on it. There are some impressive statues and sculptures along it. Some great views of the Castell too.

This bridge was designed in 1886 but not completed until 1911. The bridge commemorating Vittorio Emanuele II of Italy is carried in three arches across the Tiber. There are plinths along the balustrade that carry colossal bronze winged Victories. Good views along the river.
