The Ponte Santa Trìnita is the oldest elliptic arch bridge in the world, the three flattened ellipses giving the structure its celebrated elegant appearance. The bridge was constructed by the Florentine architect Bartolomeo Ammanati from 1567 to 1569. On 8 August 1944, the bridge was destroyed by retreating German troops, but reconstructed in 1958 with original stones raised from the Arno and from the original quarry.
