In this area, which originally housed the food market, there has always been a canal crossing, at first, a simple bridge of boats, and later a real wooden, made from two inclined ramps with a mobile section in the middle, in order to allow the passage of ships.

Beginning in 1524, artists and architects, including Sansovino, Palladio, and Michelangelo, began submitting blueprints for the new project.
