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

. The church of S. Antonino, former parish was erected by the family Badoara in the seventh century. It was later rebuilt in 1680, as we learn from the inscription on the report. Now we need to branch in S. John Bragora. Its bell tower was built around the middle of the past century, since the priest Antonio Fusarini, who died in 1762, said he was on the tombstone \auctor sacrae turris.\ This church in 1819 was the scene of a strange adventure. In it riparossi a big elephant, escaped, with great fear of the population, from his menagerie on the \Riva degli Schiavoni.\ Not being worth balls rifle to kill him, it was necessary to have recourse to the gunners, who pinned a colubrina, they did finally fall lifeless on the ground. The fact breathed \the Elefanteide\ of the famous Buratti. See also the pamphlet entitled \The elefanticidio Venice in the year 1819 of the noble Mr. Peter Bonmartini Padovano. Venice, Andreola, 1819. \
