The following is any history we have regarding the bridge's origins:

to S. Sofia. Are in Estimi called \Calli Currents\ those which, straightforwardly, or desertions, drive to a certain point. Formerly in the same parish of St. Sofia there were the \Current at Calle Ca 'd'Oro,\ and \Calle Corrente to the Church.\ This we are talking about was called \Calle Field Current dell'Erba,\ because of its proximity to the field of that name. It communicated the appellation to the next bridge.
