Piazza Vittorio Bridge ("The Stone Bridge")

Thanks to its position between Piazza Vittorio Veneto and Piazza della Gran Madre, this bridge is for sure the best-known of the city of Turin. The bridge, which is 150 metres long and almost 13 metres wide, has not undergone any modifications for the past two centuries, apart from the changes due to the tramway line, carried out in 1876, when the stone handrail was replaced with a cast-iron one.

The bridge was built during the long period of annexation of Piedmont to the French Empire. The bridge is still the beautiful construction Napoleon wanted for Turin, and ended up being inaugurated by Vittorio Emanuele I after he returned from Cagliari.
