The Cimolai group of Pordenone, has delivered to Commissioner Marco Bucci for the reconstruction of the Morandi bridge, four projects for the new highway viaduct, three are signed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. They are all bridges built in steel.
The first, called Cristoforo Colombo bridge, has 7 spans of 125 meters, 8 stacks that recall the longevity of the trees that with their solidity support the roadway. The second, called 'Ponte dei pescatori', is a cable-stayed bridge with spans of 140 meters that symbolizes a seafaring town with a reference to the sails.
The third project was called 'Porta Mediterranea II'. A large arch overlooks the Polcevera stream and creates a continuity with the profile of the nearby mountains. These three are Calatrava's projects. Info project
