The memo describes the project for a pedestrian bridge located on the same axis as the principal prospect of Villa Pisani (at Stra – VE). The work is composed of two low arches, arranged on a span of about twenty-two metres, with hollow section in “corten” steel, tilted at an angle of about thirty degrees with respect to the horizontal plain. At the ends, the four supports rest on spherical hinges connected to a steel bell which represents the thrust saddle of the hydraulic pistons with central direct action, wich allow navigation on the river Brenta at any time of the day, liftinf the footbridge to the height established by the Venice Civil Engineering office.
