Project description:

The bridge designed by German architect Thomas Herzog is a place of passage as well as a place to stop and enjoy the landscape. The slender bridge structure, made entirely of Cor-Ten steel, is not straight but bends at a wide angle at the pillar in the middle of the river. It joins the two banks of the Esino River with two 29-metre spans. The 2068 footbridge was selected and exhibited at the 2018 Venice Biennale of Architecture.

The Biagiotti company was responsible for the entire construction of the project, creating the structural steelwork according to the aesthetics and concept of German architect Thomas Herzog. The two sections, each 29 metres long, were built in the factory and transported to the construction site together with the central peninsula. The assembly of the construction involved a workforce of 8 people for 3 days.
