Augustus' Bridge

Augustus' Bridge

Commissioned by Augustus circa 27 BC, this grandiose construction was included in the largest redevelopment and restoration plan of the Via Flaminia which joined Rome with the Adriatic coast in Rimini. 

Approximately 160 meters long and 30 meter high, the Bridge of Augustus is a tangible expression of the high engineering levels achieved by the Romans which, according to recent studies, envisioned a bold construction with four arches on great individual pylons. Today the bridge is in its rudimentary form following damage caused by war and natural disasters, as well as structural failure although it received continuous maintenance intervention throughout the centuries.
