Bridge connects the Cestius' island to the right bank of the Tiber, where that extends the Trastevere district. The bridge, built in 46 BC by Lucius Cestius, politician Caesar, had originally a central arch and two smaller arches low arch side, resting on pillars of tuff and lava stone covered with travertine. It was completely rebuilt with three arches, around 370 AD by Emperor Valens, Valentinian and Gratian, as shown in the registration re-inserted into the right wall of the bridge, using the travertine near Theatre of Marcellus in ruins. It was thought that the medieval name of 'Tiber Island, Lycaonia, was due to the presence of this bridge of a statue representing the region of Asia Minor, which became a province in those same years, in 373 AD In the fifteenth century was also known as Bridge St. Bartholomew, of the same name from the church that stands on 'Tiber Island, while in the seventeenth century was also called bridge-Ferrat, the large amount of iron chains of mills in the river. During the construction of the embankments, it was necessary to increase the distance between the island and the shore with the subsequent demolition of the main arch, however, where the material was reused in the renovation of the bridge. A new intervention was necessary in 1902 with the construction of special platforms to curb the momentum of the flow of the river, particularly strong in this part. The last trip of 1999 took care to restore the entire surface of travertine. The bridge measures 54 feet long, 8 wide and has three masonry arches.
a wonderful bridge, and a nice view, but maybe a bit more contrast??:-)
I agree Kristin.
Great composition and detail ! (it might 'jump out' even more with tone curves in the wall..just a thought.)Loooove to see the real this one day :)
perfect, nice soft color palate.
I like the softness of the image
I agree with Kristin, lovely bridge.
è la magica città di Roma
Agree with Kristin.
This is really beautiful view!
I like delicate tones to this composition
Very nice but lacks a little contrast and a bit of vibrancy ;)
Wonderful picture and motive.
Super details, a little bit more dark may generate better layers as long as not losing details.
Lovely image and composition but I agree with all the comments on contrast.
