The Ugly Bridge

Ponte della Venezia seen from the scali del Ponte di Marmo, Livorno
The drab “Ponte della Venezia” (Venice's Bridge), seen from the “Scali del Ponte di Marmo”. It was probably slightly better just after its construction, but the bridge now looks like a greyish sad hulk amid the freshly repainted buildings around it. This is probably the thing that could be made more interesting by some colorful and well planned mural.

The other bridges of New Venice: Ponte di Marmo - Ponte dei Domenicani - Ponte di San Giovanni - Ponte dell'Angiolo - Ponte del Luogo Pio - The Non-Bridge of Crocetta - Ponte della Fortezza Nuova

Perhaps a mural would be nice.

I don't think it's ugly. I like it.

Yes, it's ugly but it did a good photo with that cloudy background.

Merry Christmas, V.P.!

I guess it could use some sprucing up.

it's not that it's an ugly bridge; perhaps a somewhat different one might compliment the setting more. but in a different setting this is a perfectly fine bridge.

Still a nice shot VP.

Or just a lick of paint...

OK, maybe the bridge it's not too bad, but it is really dirty...

Jack said...

It does look pretty drab. Most of the other bridges have a similar style using brick. It is too late to do this here. Maybe it just needs pressure cleaning and a coat of paint.

I have seen worse, but it could perhaps use some color.

The bridge might be ugly but everything else is not. Lovely colours.

The actual design isn't too bad VP, it just needs a little TLC..
