The Ponte dell'Accademia is one of just four scaffolds to traverse the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It crosses close to the southern end of the waterway, and is named for the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, which from 1807 to 2004 was housed in the Scuola della Carità together with the Gallerie dell'Accademia, which is still there. The scaffold connects the sestieri of Dorsoduro and San Marco. A scaffold on the site was first recommended as right on time as 1488.
The provveditore Luca Trum proposed in the Council to construct two scaffolds over the Grand Canal, one here and the other at Santa Sofia. The individuals from the Council, be that as it may, giggled at him, and the movement was not put to the vote.
