Venezia | Handrail of Ponte di Rialto

WI_e2092m.jpg

The Ponte di Rialto crosses the Canal Grande between the neighbourhoods of San Marco and San Polo. It was completed in 1591, replacing an earlier wooden bridge. The marble of the handrail has suffered some degree of erosion during its first more than 400 years of existence.
