Bridge in black & white

The Ponte dell’Accademia crosses the Grand Canal of Venice. In 1854, it was decided that Venice should be ‘modernised’ and a steel structure was built over the canal. However, this was removed and replaced with a wooden one in 1933. People hoped it would be replaced with a stone bridge, but it was not. The wooden structure was replaced in 1985 with what stands today.
