Built in the Republican period so that the VIA SALARIA could pass the ANIENE RIVER
The original bridge was constructed by the Etruscans who used the Via Salaria to take salt from the salt marshes near the mouth of the Tiber to the Sabina region
It was destroyed and rebuilt several times
The MODERN PONTE SALARIO was built in 1870 with an expansion in 1930
The structure of the end of the second/first half of the century BC there are only two minor arches incorporated into the modern bridge. They are in cement with shards of tuff, while the outer blocks are made of tuff stone from Fidene
