The Ponte Salario, near Rome  1809

by Josephus Augustus Knip

The original Ponte Salario, spanning the River Aniene north of Rome, was built by the Etruscans. This road bridge was an important link in the northern route to Rome and so was battered repeatedly in the course of its long history. The present bridge dates from 1930; all remains of the old bridge have vanished.
