Genoa San Giorgio Bridge

Genoa San Giorgio Bridge A bridge that slowly crosses Polcevera Valley, step by step, in silence, almost asking for permission; a bridge that will be like a ship, a big white vessel moored in the valley; a bridge that can't be banal in its simplicity; a bridge made by Italian excellences who, through an intense activity of coordination, planning and the work of expert professionals, had to carry out the work as soon as possible. It is through the words of its designer, architect and senator for life Renzo Piano, that we want to introduce the new Genova San Giorgio Bridge. The steel contractor's approach to the realization of the work is summed up in the words of the CEO Giuseppe Bono: ”The bridge must be an expression and a symbol of the country all over the world. All this is Fincantieri, what we have done so far and what we will do. Fincantieri represents something unique in our country, with introduction of its unparalleled integration model.“ The steel contractor has made the replacement of former Morandi bridge possible only two years after the tragic events of 14 August 2018, bringing the road system of the Autostrada dei Fiori motorway back to normal. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Steel Construction: Design and Research Wiley

Abstract

A bridge that slowly crosses Polcevera Valley, step by step, in silence, almost asking for permission; a bridge that will be like a ship, a big white vessel moored in the valley; a bridge that can't be banal in its simplicity; a bridge made by Italian excellences who, through an intense activity of coordination, planning and the work of expert professionals, had to carry out the work as soon as possible. It is through the words of its designer, architect and senator for life Renzo Piano, that we want to introduce the new Genova San Giorgio Bridge. The steel contractor's approach to the realization of the work is summed up in the words of the CEO Giuseppe Bono: ”The bridge must be an expression and a symbol of the country all over the world. All this is Fincantieri, what we have done so far and what we will do. Fincantieri represents something unique in our country, with introduction of its unparalleled integration model.“ The steel contractor has made the replacement of former Morandi bridge possible only two years after the tragic events of 14 August 2018, bringing the road system of the Autostrada dei Fiori motorway back to normal.
