The bridge is 133 m (148 yd) long and 20 m (22 yd) wide and presents only one decoration over the central arch: a plaque showing an eagle with its wings spread out that clasps the lictor’s fasces in its claws. The bridge that connects the Flaminio and the Milizie Quarters was supposed to be called at first "Delle Milizie", but was successively called "Littorio".
After the breakdown of Fascism it was lastly dedicated to the socialist deputy Giacomo Matteotti who was murdered in the surroundings of the bridge due to his opposition to the regime.
Lungotevere Arnaldo da Brescia, Rome
