Ponte dei Fieschi

The Bridge of Fieschi from the early twelfth century, belongs to the type, very widespread in the hinterland of Liguria, single-span bridge with path before ascending and then descending about 24 meters long, made of blocks of local stone worked coarsely and free of finishing layer. In the twentieth century railings on both sides, made from the same type of stones used for the construction of the structure, they were replaced by a series of pillars of reinforced concrete enclosed by a railing modular metallic incongruous. Being restored, as well as the consolidation of damaged masonry, the project involved the restoration of the original railing and a shrine (similar to that found in historical images) semicircular with gable roof, slate mantle and niche flanked on both sides by small capitals Tuscan order and the realization of a plant for the artistic lightEngineer

Palazzo Cavagnari

The building dates back to the second half of the nineteenth century, located near the main road of the Fontanabuona Valley, consists of three floors above ground in stone masonry, hipped roof with roof covering in abbadini slate; The project involves the substantial rehabilitation of severely degraded two fronts facing the public space and the construction of a plant for artistic lightEngineer The main façade is divided into two sectors, the least of which is set back about a meter over the other, divided, as usual for the buildings of significance, in the four core segments: base, base, base and cornice. The base is made, as is typical of this valley, with slate slabs anchored to the wall with the special characteristics and iron clamps. Above the hoof, the processing of the topcoat imitating rustication in relief, with horizontal courses of the height of about 40 cm. The separation between the base and the bottom is constituted by a string-course realized by a series of moldings which run from side to side without interruption. The corners of the building are marked by the presence of antheridia, which, unlike the usual, have all the same width. The cornice, is formed by a series of moldings, which is added, however, also a frieze denticular of ionic type.

Ponte della Vittoria

Less than one hundred meters from the Bridge of Fieschi, the stream Lavagna is overtaken by another structure built in 1937 and dedicated to the fallen in the Great War. The single-span bridge is set on an arc polycentric that connects the two banks for growing a length of 30 meters. The structure is made of solid brick masonry seats knife. On the two kidneys of the arc, the filling is made of stone material, while the road surface is constituted by a series of reinforced concrete sleepers which support the decking straight. Is the arch of the bridge carrying the batteries are treated in imitation ashlar. The project included a substantial reorganization of the structure of the deck (with an emphasis on the concrete of the ceilings and shelves), consolidation and replacement of much of the support layer, the reconstitution of the drafts and the restoration of 'plaster cocciopesto applied with a notched trowel and finished with wood.
