Before, in XVI century, the bridge took a lugubrious look: it was used for hanging and for capital executions. Romans where saying that "There are more cut heads on the parapet of Sant' Angelo bridge than melons on the market stalls"
The 10 Angels on the banisters, representing the steps of the Christ Passion where made under Bernini directions in 1669.
Today remains only three central arcades of the ancient bridge: the two elegant Roman ramps, where destroyed to adapt the bridge to the new river's embankments in the XIX century.
Actually this panorama is a self-portrait, representing the bridge of solidarity between us: my camera broke the day before, and Giancarlo offered me his one, so went together to photograph the bridge, we share the equipment and we include ourselves in the panorama.
And now it's my turn to thank these following masters:Michelangelo Buonarroti, for the skyline of S.Peter's dome; Gianlorenzo Bernini for the flying (even stone-made) angels, and...Toni "panoramaster" Garbasso for his kindness and extraordinary professionality. It was a real pleasure to shot this panorama with him, really!.
