The Piazza San Marco might be more well known, however the Ponte di Rialto Bridge is the genuine heart of Venice. The present structure was worked in only three years, in the vicinity of 1588 and 1591, as a lasting swap for the watercraft extension and three wooden scaffolds that had spread over the Grand Canal at different circumstances since the twelfth Century. It remained the best way to cross the Grand Canal by walking until the Accademia Bridge was worked in 1854
.The Rialto Bridge's 7.5-meter 24-foot curve was intended to permit section of galleys, and the monstrous structure was based on somewhere in the range of 12,000 wooden pilings that still help the extension over 400 years after the fact. The modeler, Antonio da Ponte , went up against such famous fashioners as Michelangelo and Palladio for the agreement.
