Ponte (Bridge) Cavour, Rome

"Ponte (Bridge) Cavour, Rome" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Thursday 28th April 2011

The new important bridge was built in 1898-1901 in substitution of the temporary iron one which was constructed by the promoters of the new city district Prati, so to connect it with the old parts of the city. For the same reason on the "new" side of the Tiber were created the things, that would attract the citizens. Among them was wooden Theatre Alhambra opened in 1871, and establishment of the bath-taking in this point of the Tiber, where men were swimming ... without bathing suits.

The bridge is 112m long and 20m wide. It connects the district of Prati to the Campus Martius. Under the piers in the so called “piagaro” – the crook of the Tiber where the sand settled forming small beaches – went Romans to refresh. They went there in special occasions to eat fava beans and pasta with “ciriole” (fresh water fish), served upon the “sciacquarelli” (small shovels used by boatmen to throw water away from the boats).
