Analytical text:

From the gravelly shore of the Enza river, at about 1300 m from Caradello, the remains of the "Pontaccio" (rugged bridge) rise. It's an arch bridge with stone structure. Without specific studies, some people say that it dates back to the Roman period. The most widely accepted theory is that it dates back to the Mathildic period. It's certainly a product of antique origins, which offered means of communication between the two sides of the river. At the beginning of the 1800's it has already been called "broken bridge".
