With the expansion of Rome, the various wooden structures of the Isola Tiberina, such as the arcades of the two bridges, were substituted by marble and masonry and the whole structure became a place dedicated to medicine. It is still today, as it can be inferred from the presence of the Fatebenefratelli Hospital (Ospedale Fatebenefratelli).
