Overview

Built during the last two decades of the 19th Century by the Italian architect Angelo Vescovali, the Garibaldi Bridge links Lungotevere de’ Cenci to Lungotevere degli Aguillara, in the Trastevere and Regola neighborhoods, respectively. The bridge was to be named Ponte alla Regola (Bridge to Regola), but after the death of the “Hero of Two Worlds”, Garibaldi, in 1882, this landmark was named in memory of the great figures’ historic actions. The bridge’s structure, already 120 meters (394 feet) long, was elongated in the 1950s.
