GENOVA SAN GIORGIO BRIDGE
2018 – 2020, GENOA, ITALY
The new bridge over the Polcevera represents a significant junction for the road connections and transportation in Genoa, Liguria and the whole of Italy. Following the collapse of the Morandi bridge on 14 August 2018, its rapid reconstruction aims to become a model for the renovation and adaptation of Italian infrastructure with a high social, economic and strategic significance. The new viaduct, which crosses the anthropised area of Val Polcevera, takes on the character of an “urban bridge”. This condition has characterised the design, ensuring that it is in tune not only with the infrastructure itself, but also with the strong relationship with the surrounding area.
