Abstract (in English)

The bridge with iron arches at the "Specola" in Padua was conceived and built between 1876 and 1880. The project signed by Francesco Turola, a municipal engineer, was attended by authoritative personalities of the nineteenth-century iron carpentry: Pio Chicchi and Paolo Rocchetti. The competing project by the engineers Colle and Sizzo, which envisaged a bridge with parabolic girders (Bow-String type), was rejected by the competition commission with questionable arguments.
