Pallotta Bridge

The Trepponti, or otherwise called Ponte Pallotta , is probably the most well-known civil monument. Its name was taken from Cardinal Giovan Battista Pallotta (1631- 1634) who commissioned the construction of this monument at the beginning of the 1600’s. At that time it was a fortified gateway to the city for those arriving from the sea towards the navigable canal. It was a contemporary hydraulic waterway which brought water rich with fish and drift-wood donating good living conditions and certain prosperity to the inhabitants of the lagoon. Luca Danese (1598-1672) from Ravenna designed the pent arch bridge. This was a new foundation for Comacchio after being abandoned by the Estense to the raids of the Venetians. Danese not only designed Ponte Pallotta (Pallotta Bridge) (the canal has his namesake) but also Ponte di San Pietro (St.Peter’s Bridge) and Ponte degli Sbirri (Policemen Bridge). He called the bridges two in one and three in one due to the number of arches that supports them. One single arch acts as a crossway for the other four canals that flow through the town areas of Sant’Agostino, Borgo, San Pietro and Salara circling and crossing the town. The initial drawing, though not lacking in purity, has changed through the centuries adapted for practical and aesthetic reasons. These changes added two watch towers and six handsome pillars at the top of the flight of stairs which we can see today.
