Photographer's Note

Cadrage serr sur les fen皻res de la fa蓷de du Ponte-Vecchio au dessus de l'Arno.
Construit en 1345 l'emplacement d'un pont romain, le Ponte Vecchio est, comme son nom l'indique, le plus vieux pont de Florence, le seul 廧argn par les bombardements en 1944.L'ouvrage est bord de boutiques de bijouterie. Au dessus des boutiques, un passage permettait aux M嶮icis de se d廧lacer discr鋈ement d'une rive de l'Arno l'autre. Les orf鋦res ont 彋 appel廥 ouvrir leur boutique en 1593 pour remplacer les 彋als de bouchers dont l'odeur incommodait les Grands Ducs.
Malgr mes tentatives de s廨幯ade, aucune belle florentine n'a voulu se montrer une fen皻re.....dommage!


Centring on the windows of the facade of Ponte-Vecchio above the Arno.

The most famous bridge in Florence and also the oldest, this structure with three stone arches replaced a wooden bridge which had crossed the Arno River at this spot since Roman times. The upper side of the bridge, known as the Vasariano corridor, was designed by Vasari to link the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery to the Pitti Palace. Originally, the sides held food shops but by the 16th century the shops were assigned to goldmiths and silvermiths
