Ponte Nuovo or Ponte della Bionda is a very old bridge over the Canale Navile. It was built at the end of the 17th century for horses who were pulling boats against the stream coming from the lower plain, sometimes even from the Adriatic sea towards the city.

The bridge “Ponte della Bionda” was partly rebuilt and repaved with river stones and it has become one of the favourite destinations of walks for Bologna's inhabitants.
