Etching. 395 x 545mm (15½ x 21½"), with large margins, uncut.
A record of the ancient Ponte Salario, a bridge over the Aniene, a tributary of the Tiber, north of Rome. Although the side arches dated from the 1st century BC, the central arch was rebuilt by the Byzantine general Narses (a collegue of Belisarius) in 565. In 1798 Napoleonic troops tore down the balustrade, including an ancient inscription, leaving notches shown here. Less than a decade later the tower (a medieval addition) was demolished; French troops broke the arch to stop Garibaldi's advance in 1849; and the bridge was finally destroyed when the Papal army blew up the central arch in 1867. The present bridge dates from 1874.
