Description

Ponte Sisto, built by Pope Sixtus IV, is also known as Agrippae Pons (bridge Agrippa), Pons Aurelius (Aurelius bridge), Pons Antonini (Antonino bridge), and Pons Valentinians (bridge Valentinian). The aim was to connect the two banks of the river Tiber, Via Pettinari and Trilussa Square. A first attempt was made by Agrippa, with the intention to connect his homes. The bridge has been identified by several names over the years because it has undergone several restorations and reconstructions. In the Roman National Museum, for example, there are some sculptures and various remains from the bridge, found in the Tiber. After some restoration, at the hands of some of the greatest Italian architects, the bridge was finally restored for the Jubilee of 2000.
