Despite the fact that he shaped Venice and its contemporary form, Eugenio Miozzi remains a little-known figure. Yet both locals and visitors experience his legacy every day, in particular when they cross his bridges: from the Ponte della Libertà, the Ponte dell’Accademia, the various bridges over the Rio Nuovo, to the exemplary Ponte degli Scalzi.


Miozzi, chief engineer of the Commune of Venice from 1931 to 1954, carried out a large number of works and projects, including a vast modernist parking garage and the Casino on the Lido. The prolific engineer-architect played a role in the development of the Fenice, made plans for the restoration of the city and the extension of the Tronchetto, and designed a trans-lagoon road and a motorway from Venice to Monaco. These projects and the others presented in this illustrated volume represent Miozzi’s efforts to combine the centuries-old traditions of Venice with a spirit of innovation as a guarantee for the city’s survival.
