il parapetto

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun il parapetto, which means railingIn Venice, almost all of the bridges have railings that keep pedestrians from falling into the water. But there is one small bridge in Venice that doesn’t, as you can see in our example below (you can see a photo of it by clicking here):

Esiste solo un ponte a Venezia senza i parapetti: Ponte Chiodo. Questo ponte si trova vicino al Ponte di Rialto e al Palazzo Ca’ D’oro. State attenti a non cadere dentro il canale!

There is only one bridge in Venice without railings: Chiodo Bridge. This bridge is located near the Rialto Bridge and the Ca’ D’oro Palace. Be careful that you do not fall into the canal!
