Two nice bridges seeming twisted

add to album

In Bolzano, in front of the Museion, the two beautiful bridges over the river Isarco (one for pedestrians and one for bycicles) have a strange shape: they give us the impressione to be "twisted" and this originates in mathematical fact: the centre line of these bridges is not a plane curve.
This example has been used in one of the ten signposts of the MIC project "Maths in the city".
You can see the two bridges from a different point of view.
