Pass By: Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, Campo de la Salute Dorsoduro 1, 30123 Venice Italy
The Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute is one of the best known in Venice, whose dome is visible from all over the city. It was constructed to celebrate the end of the plague in 1631.
Santa María della Salute is one of the most important religious buildings in Venice. Its striking dome is depicted in most of the city’s postcards.
Salute, as it is commonly known, was founded in 1631. The basilica was built to commemorate the end of a terrible outbreak of the plague that began in 1630, and killed a large portion of the Veneto population. It was dedicated to Our Lady of Health (Salute in Italian).
The architect, Baldassare Longhena, was commissioned to design the church and had also been responsible for the construction of the Ca’ Rezzonico. Santa Maria della Salute took 56 years to build and was completed in 1687.
Pass By: Ponte dell'Accademia, Campo de la Carita, Venice Italy
The Accademia Bridge is one of the four bridges in Venice that currently cross the Grand Canal. It connects the Sestiere di San Marco to the Sestiere di Dorsoduro.
As time went by, the Venetians felt the need to add a crossing on the Grand Canal in addition to the famous Rialto Bridge. After the study of various solutions, the project of the English engineer Alfredo Enrico Neville, who proposed an iron bridge, was realized. This bridge, called Ponte della Carità, was built on 20 November 1854.
After a few years the bridge presented structural problems and during the Fascist period the signs of deterioration and corrosion were worrying. While waiting for the construction of a new stone bridge, a temporary wooden bridge designed by engineer Eugenio Miozzi was built and inaugurated on February 19, 1933.
The war and the costs transformed the provisional wooden bridge into a definitive one, but with continuous maintenance.
