The reinforced concrete bridge has a single arch and is 220 m (722 ft) long and 30 m (98 ft) wide; at both extremities are placed two pairs of shafts, whose façades are decorated with high-relieves by the Tuscan sculptor Vico Consorti, illustrating war scenes on the rivers Isonzo, Tagliamento, Sile and Adige.
The bridge links the Flaminio quarter to the Foro Italico.
