1886/90 Angelo Vescovali (1826/95)
Measuring 155 m (508.5 feet), it is the longest bridge in Rome
In order to build it two arches of the Ponte Rotto (Broken Bridge) were torn down
It is also known as the English Bridge for the traffic on the left
Many accidents have occurred on the bridge, some of them fatal, so as to give it the reputation of cursed bridge
Near the end of the right is the outlet of the CLOACA MAXIMA the ancient sewer coming from the area of ​the Forum of Nerva dating back to the sixth century BC
Originally the pipe ran in the open. Between the second and first century BC a vault in tuff stone was built in, buried in various points in restorations with concrete or brickwork
