Here we see La Catrina bathing by the Ponte Santa Trinita in Florence. The original bridge was built in 1252. There was a terrible flood in 1557, so Cosimo I de' Medici commissioned its reconstruction to Bartolomeo Ammannati. It is made of so called “pietra forte”which translates to “ sandstone and is decorated with commemorative epigraphs. It was considered the most elegant bridge in Florence until it was destroyed by the Germans during the Second World War. It was rebuilt in 1958.
