The Emilio Bridge, also known as the Rotto Bridge, is one of the oldest Roman stone bridges in the world.
The bridge was built on the site of an old wooden bridge in the II century. The Emilio Bridge connected the Trastevere area with the Baor Forum. The very first pier of the bridge was created in the 3rd century. Over the long period of its existence, the bridge was rebuilt several times.
In 1598 the bridge was closed, as the eastern part of it was destroyed. In the 80s of the XIX century the rest of the bridge was also destroyed, and only one arch has survived to this day.
