Ponte della Costituzione

The Ponte della Costituzione ("Consitution's Bridge"), also known as Calatrava's Bridge from the name of the Spanish architect who designed it, was built between 2002 and 2008 and is thus the newest bridge crossing the Grand Canal.
Its modern design surely stands up among the historic structures surrounding it, but at the same time it fits in its environment, as it is minimalist and most importantly made simply by glass and Istrian marble, which is the most frequent stone used for the ancient buildings of Venice.
Nonetheless, such an innovative structure in a city where tradition and ancient architecture are so important couldn't but raise a rather heated debate, also questioning the money spent in that work.
However the bridge has been largely acknowledged by now and it has become a further attraction offered by Venice to its visitors.
