Always visible.

Ponte Milvio, the site of the famous battle between Constantine and Maxentius in 312 AD, is one of the oldest bridges in Rome, and junction of the Cassia, Flaminia, Clodia and Veientana roads. Originally made of wood, it was rebuilt in stone by the censor Marco Emilio Scaurus in 109 BC. It was repeatedly destroyed, restored and expanded, and its current aspect is the work of architect Giuseppe Valadier. The head of the bridge towards Viale Tiziano is adorned with two marble statues of the Immaculate by Domenico Pigiani (1840) and the Bohemian saint San Giovanni Nepomuceno by Agostino Cornacchini (1731). The other side, which looks out on Viale Tor di Quinto, presented the Baptism of Christ by Francesco Mochi (1633), now kept in the Palazzo Braschi and replaced by a copy.
