About this Painting

This is a cropped version of my painting “Racing on the Tiber”. 

It is the view of the River Tiber (il Fiumi Tevere) from the Ponte Umberto 1 of the Ponte Sant’ Angelo with the Vatican City in the background. 

Once the Aelian Bridge (Pons Aelius - meaning the Bridge of Hadrian) and later called the Bridge of Saint Peter (Pons Sancti Petri), it was completed in AD 134 AD by the Emperer Hadrian to connect  the city center to his newly constructed mausoleum, now the Castel Sant’Angelo, part of which is just visible on the right of the painting.  The bridge is faced with travertine marble and is lined by a number of statues, including those representing Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses.   

For centuries the bridge has provided a route for pilgrims visiting St. Peter’s Basillica and today it is used solely by pedestrians.
