Photographer's Note

Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II, Rome, Italy

The Vittorio Emanuele II bridge designed by Ennio De Rossi was opened on 5 June 1911 after 25 years of work. Four columns rise up from the three-arched bridge, two on each side, bearing bronze representations of the Winged Victory, but it is the white marble sculptures in the centre of the bridge that attract attention, placed over the pillars of the central arch to symbolise the Unity of Italy, Liberty, Oppression defeated, and Loyalty to the Constitution.
