The Monumental Bridge

The Gamba's project and the later construction of the bridge aroused an overall admiration but it also caused a lot of criticism. The bridge was also called "the empty bridge" because of its different galleries. However, the designer responded to critics by saying: "As soon as you remove supports, bring me a cot and I'll sleep on it tonight. We'll talk about it tomorrow in the morning".

The construction of the bridge required the displacement of the portello (the one on the right). It enabled the passage of the cannons that composed the coast battery on the sea ring road.
