The north arch of Calatrava bridge in Reggio Emilia, Italy
The three bridges in Reggio Emilia are singular steel structures designed by the Spanish engineer and architect Santiago Calatrava. These infrastructures are important links between the busy motorway A1, which links Milan to Bologna, passing the city of Reggio Emilia. The main structure is the central bridge that spans the motorway mentioned above and the adjacent railway. There are also twin bridges across two roundabouts next to the main bridge. Specifically, one across the south roundabout connects with the motorway, whereas the north one allows the connection with the exhibition center and the new railway station Mediopadana. The three bridges have played an important role in the urban regeneration of the city and were inaugurated in October 2007.
