Ponte Vecchio - Monuments
Ponte Vecchio is wide enough to have two arched porticos on its sides where 43 bottegas were set, at first with butcher shops and green grocer's, until the grand duke Ferdinand I, at the end of 1500, wanted that their places be occupied by gold smiths and jewelry shops.
Thanks to the earnings from rental fees of these shops, another reconstruction of the bridge was made possible. Always crowed with people, it remains even today a symbol of Florence and although it was built with the sole aim of crossing the river, it has taken the form of a real street, a marketplace, a square.
Ponte Vecchio was saved from bombings by the Germans, who bombed the adjacent surroundings to bar access, while with the flood of 1966, which we may all remember, damages occurring to the shops were grave.
