Flying over Paderno d’Adda and its impressive iron bridge. Enjoy the Adda River and its hydraulic projects: the Robbiate dam and Semenza hydroelectric plant.
If you think of Paderno d’Adda for sure you think of its great iron bridge.
Paderno is placed along the shore of the Adda River, which represented a major line of communication in the past, especially the trade since the Middle Ages.
With the advent of the industrial age new road and rail tracks were born, and so the necessity to connect Bergamo to Lecco and Monza to Como. Here is the impetus for the creation of the Paderno d’Adda bridge, designed by the Swiss Jules Röthlisberger and built between 1887 and 1889.
An impressive bridge with a large metal arch of 150 m that connects Paderno to Calusco. The bridge is dual purpose: road and rail.
From the bridge you can admire the canal and looking to north the three major hydraulic projects: the Robbiate dam, the Edison waterway and the Semenza hydroelectric plant.
