The recent photo of the Recco Rail Viaduct is from the Structurae Database.

The Recco Viaduct (line Genoa-La Spezia) was rebuilt in 1946-48 with 6 parabolic arches on a curve of 400 m radius. Thanks to its design qualities and to the importance of the railway line, it can be assumed as one of the symbols of the reconstruction.
