Ponte Arcuato
Codex Atlanticus F. 22 r.

These are the light and strong bridges that Leonardo promised in his letter to The Duke of
Milan, Ludovico Il Moro. They could be build rapidly with materials that were easy to find
and carry such as small logs and ropes. This type of bridge is made entirely of interlocking
logs without ropes or tools. The bridge is strong enough to support the weight of a number of
people. It permits rapid and unexpected troop movements across rives, thus controbuting to
the element of surprise, often a fundamental factor in the success of a battle.

Λεονάρντο ντα Βίντσι

Καμαρωτή Γέφυρα

Αυτές είναι οι ελαφριές και ισχυρές γέφυρες που είχε υποσχεθεί ο Λεονάρντο σε επιστολή του
προς το δούκα του Μιλάνο, Λουδοβίκο Ιλ Μορό. Θα μπορούσαν να κατασκευαστούν γρήγορα με υλικά
που ήταν εύκολο να βρουν και να μεταφέρουν, όπως μικρά κούτσουρα και σχοινιά.
