Ponte sul Piave


The idea for the new cycle pathway for the Municipality of Ponte nelle Alpi is to shape an authentic belvedere on the river Piave which is characterized by an extraordinary landscape and natural heritage. The proposal goes beyond the concept of a bridge, which by definition is a structure used as a crossing and by its nature an element of passage usable only and only to reach a new position. In our case it is not only a matter of overcoming the Piave river but also of designing an architectural object that enhances the value of an already extraordinary place, thus improving its perception and becoming a new landmark.
