The drawbridge

The drawbridge, designed as part of the nineteenth-century urban project, serves to join the Marciana area to its Gardens on the Bacino di San Marco side.
The bridge which has long ceased to serve as a passageway, is in nearly total disrepair. The restoration project will conserve existing elements, integrating them into a structure that complies with current regulations.
The permeability and continuity between the piazza and the side of the garden adjacent to the water, will infuse new life into the courtyard of the Royal Palace, currently the Correr Museum, directing attention along a now forgotten visual axis.
