Il primo ponte in cemento armato a Roma: Ponte Risorgimento nel cinquantenario dell’Unità d’Italia
There is a rich bibliography on the Ponte Risorgimento in Rome. The new reading proposed here was possible thanks to the comparison of the documents preserved in the archives of the company of G.A. Porcheddu, Hennebique’s agent for Northern Italy and builder of the bridge, with the documents kept at the Fonds Bétons Armés Hennebique in Paris and with those found in the Archivio Storico Capitolino. The daily correspondence, the sequence of which has been reconstructed by interpolating the papers from Turin, Rome and Paris, vividly reflects, even after one hundred years, the audacity, concern, pride, skills and excitement of the protagonists who designed and built the most daring bridge over the Tiber.
