Ponte Santa Trinita: "Where it was, as it was"

A lecture by Jason Arkles


"Dov'era e com'era" was the rallying cry promoting the meticulous rebuilding of the Ponte Santa Trinita in Florence, after its demolition at the hands of the Nazis during the Second World War.


But the reconstruction of Bartolomeo Ammanati's bridge - considered by many to be one of the most elegant in Europe - was only the latest chapter in the chronicle of its existence.


Discover how the Ponte Santa Trinita spans the centuries as well as the Arno itself.
