Construction of the Cable-Stayed Bridge in the Commercial Port of Venice, Italy
The bridge presents a curved deck, steel-concrete composite structure, single layer of stay cables displayed on a conical layout, and a slanted single lateral mast.
The construction method was based on the erection of the deck structure by floating and lifting of large macro-elements. The girder system was designed according to the concept of deck structure protected by a stainless steel enclosure.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
