-Scatti raccontati- di Monica Bianchetti

“I’m looking at the water beneath me through the glass.

Versione italiana 🇮🇹 sotto ↓

The bridge is slightly swinging. Everything swings in Venice, always. We the Venetians fluctuate, we do not walk. The bridge stands tall and vain over the Grand Canal. So many controversies over this bridge, it has cost us too much money. However, if you look at if carefully, it is not so bad. It sinuously connects one bank to the other and from up there you can already notice this improbable city.”

Santa Croce-Calatrava


“Attraverso il vetro guardo l’acqua sotto di me.  Il ponte ha un leggero dondolio. Tutto dondola sempre a Venezia. Fluttiamo noi veneziani, non camminiamo. Il ponte si erge vanitoso e fiero sul Canal Grande. Quante polemiche per questo ponte, troppi soldi ci è costato. Eppure, a guardarlo bene, non è poi così brutto. Congiunge con fare sinuoso una riva con l’altra e dall’alto la scorgi già questa improbabile città.”

Ponte della Costituzione (Ponte di Calatrava) Venezia.

  1. It was a work of art, there should have been a second, utilitarian bridge built next to it, so it could have remained pristine. 😊
