Reggio Emilia Ponti

Reggio Emilia


In October, 2007, an ensemble of three bridges designed by Calatrava was inaugurated in Reggio nellà Emilia, near Bologna in Italy. These bridges are the first phase of a larger project, which will includes a new high-speed railway station and other infrastructure improvement program. Plans for the bridges originated in 2002 when the city of Reggio Emilia invited Calatrava to design a new train station "Stazione Mediopadana" for the TAV (Treno Alta Velocità ) highspeed railway line between Milan and Bologna. In addition, he was also commissioned to create a master plan for the city's outskirt — a fragmented area called Mancasale —, to improve vehicular access and provide an impressive new gateway from the north.
