Sculptural group on the Ponte (Bridge of) Vittorio Emanuele II, Rome. In the background is the Castel Sant’Angelo.

Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II is a bridge in Rome constructed to designs of 1886 by the architect Ennio De Rossi. Construction was delayed, and it was not inaugurated until 1911. The bridge commemorating Vittorio Emanuele II of Italy is carried in three arches spanning a distance of 108 metres. It is decorated at the ends with high socles carrying colossal bronze winged Victories and over each of the piers with massive allegorical travertine sculptural groups.

The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as the Castel Sant'Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel), is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Swimming the Tiber', which features a distant view of the Ponte Vittorio and Castel Sant'Angelo.

Best wishes,
Philip

Well composed with the Castel in the background echo-ing the beautiful and well-lit sculpture.

Nice detail here on one of the sculpture groups on the bridge, Philip, nicely composed to include the castle in the background.
