Despite the fact that he shaped Venice and its contemporary form, Eugenio Miozzi remains a little-known figure. Yet both locals and visitors experience his legacy every day, in particular when they cross his bridges: from the Ponte della Libertà, to the Ponte dell’Accademia; from the various bridges over the Rio Nuovo, to the exemplary Ponte degli Scalzi.

Miozzi, chief engineer of the Commune of Venice from 1931 to 1954, carried out a large number of works and projects, including a vast modernist parking garage and the Casino on the Lido. The prolific engineer-architect played a role in the development of the Teatro La Fenice, made plans for the restoration of the city and the extension of the Tronchetto, and designed a translagoon road and a motorway from ­Venice to Munich. These projects and the others presented in this illustrated volume represent Miozzi’s tireless efforts to guarantee the city’s survival by combining its centuries-old traditions with a spirit of innovation.
