The Santa Trinita Bridge is one of Florence's bridges over the Arno River.
The Santa Trinita Bridge was built in 1258. Initially, the structure consisted of wood, however, in 1333, after a flood, wood was replaced by stone. The bridge acquired its present appearance in 1557. The bridge was designed by Bartolomeo Ammannati.
In 1944 the bridge was blown up by the Nazis, but in 1957 it was carefully restored by the townspeople. Statues were erected along the edges of the bridge, one of them was decapitated by an explosion. In 1961, a marble head was found in the waters of the Arno.
