The wooden bridge is the symbol of the city and is a vital communication route
linking the village with Bassano, Angarano. Already in 1209, has documented the existence of a wooden bridge which was destroyed several times. The design of the bridge around 1569, was planned by Andrea Palladio. The reconstruction of 1947, after the war, came to the Alpine troops, with the reintegration of the two balconies central eighteenth century. Input to the bridge, also known as the Alpine, Renaissance arches are two, respectively, 1521 and 1531. In the Middle Ages, the bridge was defended by towers at either end: one of which is recognizable to Angarano.
In 1966 the bridge was severely damaged by the flood that has affected the whole of Italy and made famous by the serious damage suffered by Venice and especially to the artistic heritage of Florence.
Once again, the wooden bridge was rebuilt with great meticulousness and passion just like the original sixteenth century. The bridge is just typical for the material that makes up wood and sloping roof to cover the entire surface and the floor slabs of carved stone and pebbles.
