Ponte della libert venice

Ponte della Libertà (English: Bridge of Liberty) is a road bridge connecting the historical center of the city of Venice, that is a group of islands, to the mainland.


Designed in 1932 by engineer Eugenio Miozzi, and opened by Benito Mussolini in 1933 as Ponte Littorio, the bridge is the only access for road vehicles to the historical center of the capital city of Veneto. At the end of World War II it was renamed Ponte della Libertà to honour the end of the Fascist dictatorship and of the Nazi occupation. The bridge is the final end of the old public road 11 (Padana Superiore), it is 3.85 km (2.39 mi) long and has two lanes each way, with no emergency lane. It is built alongside the Venice Railroad Bridge, which was constructed in 1846, with two tracks each way, and is still in use.
