The Rialto Bridge, the oldest in the city of Venice, Italy was built between 1588-1591 and was the only foot path and permanent link between the two banks of the Grand Canal. Because of the instability of the site, construction was difficult. Built on some 12,000 wooden pilings that still support the structure 400 years later, it is an architectural and engineering achievement of the Renaissance.
This ¾" thick wooden replica of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy is designed and painted to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday.
