In 1992 author Robert James Waller penned a best-seller, The Bridges of Madison County.
So, what’s up? Actually, what’s ACROSS is a nice easy stroll around this three-river provincial city in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy to take in all eight of her ponti (bridges) that dot the ancient part of town: Santa Libera, Furo, San Paolo, San Michele, delle Barche, degli Angeli, Pustera and Novo. Lens cap off, let’s have a look.
Although Vicenza, the City of Palladio, is very, very far from Madison County, Iowa — both in distance and time — her picturesque bridges and serpentine waterways are truly worthy of a National Geographic photo essay. Wouldn’t you agree?
