Lungotevere in Rome
Lungotevere is a boulevard or boulevard that runs along the Tiber River in Rome city, built by demolishing pre-existing buildings on the banks of the river itself, the embankments of which were limited by the construction of the bank. The embankment adjoins the famous riones of Rome, like: colorful Trastevere, ancient Borgo, Ponte.
The embankments were built mainly to eliminate and suppress the floods of the Tiber. On July 6, 1875, a law was passed, which marked the beginning of the demolition of buildings on the bank with the corresponding construction of avenues along the river, and the erection of massive walls and bringing the width of the channel to 100 meters. Many historically significant buildings, structures and churches were demolished for construction: among them Palazzo Altoviti, Sant'Anna dei Bresciani, Ripetta harbor, Cestia bridge, Teatro Apollo in Tor di Nona, Ponte Rotto. Ponte Sant'Angelo, has also been expanded with two arches added.
Work began in 1876 and ended in 1926; on this occasion, several bridges were built that connected the two banks of the Tiber. The Lungoteveri were designed by the engineer Raffaele Canevari, it was inspired by the Parisian embankment model.
