Bridge of Castel St. Angelo One of the most famous bridge in Rome, built in the 239 AD. Large number of medieval pilgrims making their way to St. Peter's walked along it to cross the Tiber at Ponte sant'Angelo (with its Bernini Angels). Of the businesses sprang up to try to part the pilgrims from their money, the most enduring was the selling of rosaries, and the near street is still named after the rosaries (Via dei Coronari). The street followed the course of the ancient Roman Via Recta (straight street) which originally ran from today's Piazza Colonna to the Tiber. Making one's way through the vast trongh of people in Via dei Coronari could be extremely hazardous. In the Holy Year of 1450, some 200 pilgrims died, crushed by the crowds or drowned in the Tiber. Following the tragedy, Pope Nicholas V demolished the Roman triumphal arch that stood at the entrance to Ponte Sant'Angelo. In the late 15th century, Pope Sixtus IV encouraged of private houses and palaces along the street. Although the rosary seller have been replaced by antiques dealers, the street still has many original buildings from the 15th and 16th century. One of the earliest, at Nos. 156-7, is known as the House of Fiammetta, the mistress of Cesare Borgia.

Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful bridges in the world is the Bridge of Angels (Ponte Sant’Angelo). The ancient construction was built by the Emperor Hadrian to link the bank of the Tiber with the Castle of Saint Angel (Castel Sant’Angelo). At the end of the bridge, you can see the statues of Saint Peter holding the keys of heaven sculpted by II Lorenzetto in 1534 and Saint Paul holding the sward by Paolo Romano in 1464. They are inscribed with the words “Hinc humilibus venia” (“Here forgiveness to the humble”) and “Hinc retribuito superbis” (Here punishment for the prideful”). You can make a journey along the Via Crucis and admire ten sculptures of angels designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, he only finished the creation of two angels – the Angel with the Superscription “I.N.R.I.” and the angel with the Crown of Thorns. In 1669, before the death, Clemet IX saw these statues and decided that they are too magnificent for the bridge. Today, you can see these angles in the church of Sant’Andrea delle Fratte near Piazza di Spagna. However, Bernini’s ideas and design were brought to life by his successors. Each of the statues is made from white marble. Moreover, each angel holds an instrument of the Passion: they present them to passers-by, the same as along the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem or on the Sacred Mountain of Varallo. The bases of the angels are inscribed with verses from the Bible. This sign transforms the instruments of the Passion into instances of Christ’s majesty and is a symbol of divine glory.

Il più affascinante ponte sul Tevere fu fatto costruire in origine dall'imperatore Adriano per collegare il proprio mausoleo alla città. L'aspetto attuale risale però al XVII secolo, quando papa Clemente IX commissionò al Bernini le splendide statue che adornano i parapetti del ponte, diventato nel frattempo il passaggio sulla strada verso la Basilica di San Pietro.
