Soft bridge - Ponte mollo.


Its name is Ponte Milvio and it is still the most ancient Roman (207 B.C.) bridge in use in the city (even if for old citizens its name is that of "Soft bridge").

The beautiful tower of guard (of the Valadier), who was serving to check who was coming in and going out of the town, today lodges pleasant painting shows.

For the young and romantic Romans, at last, this is alone "bridge of the padlocks",.. but this is another history..!


Si chiama Ponte Milvio ed è il più antico ponte romano (207 a.c.) ancora in uso in città, (anche se per vecchi cittadini il suo nome è quello di “Ponte mollo”).

La bella torre di guardia (del Valadier), che serviva per controllare chi entrava e usciva dalla città, oggi ospita piacevoli mostre di pittura.

Per i giovani e romantici romani, infine, questo è solo “ponte dei lucchetti”, …. ma questa è un’altra storia…..!

Les ponts sont toujours très beaux, qu'ils soient anciens ou modernes. Les ponts nous rapprochent, et le piéton qui emprunte un pont ralentit souvent pour regarder couler l'eau et peut-être aussi pour mieux méditer. Les ponts sont déstressants. On devrait préscrire des promenades sur les ponts à tous les anxieux.

Hello Nazzareno, it is me Claude from my work's blog. Very beautiful old bridge. Do you konw "le Pont du Gard" near Nîmes in the south of France ? This roman bridge reminds me "le Pont du Gard".

@Lori:the colors are soft as the name of the bridge.

@Gmg:it is also on wiki to the voice "Ponte Milvio".

Les ponts sont beaux, mais les ponts romains sont difficiles à photographier (j'en veux pour preuve le pont du Gard qui est un viaduc si prestigieux)
Ce pont a une échelle humaine, cela ne m'étonne pas que les amoureux l'aiment

La photo elle-même est douce. Elle est apaisante, à l'image de ce tendre ciel rose et bleu... pastels...
