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

�the Giudecca. The chronicle Scivos assures us that the parish church sacred to St. Euphemia, Dorothea, Thecla and Erasma, martyrs in Aquileia, was-constructed in 865 under the doge Bear Partecipazio. After being then restored several times, was reduced to its present form in the middle of the past century. He must have had various consecrazioni, of which we know nothing, however, that the eccettuatane 1371 ricordataci engaged by a plaque at the door. In 1810 the parish seat is moved from the church of S. Eufemia in that of SS. Redeemer to be fine again transported to St. Euphemia when the Capuchins in 1822 regained their ancient possessions. Andrea Davanzago, parish priest at St. Euphemia of Giudecca, having died in 1437 some Mina, led some girls to testify that the deceased, by his will nuncupativo, had left all his possessions. Therefore the first quoted Quarantia Criminal, said in a thousand pappolate exculpate himself, verbigrazia that Mina, dying, had given birth to two children \in tendentes invisible\, the first of which in 1440 had to be pope, and the second emperor, adding words to modesty, say 'rasps', is passed over in silence. His defenses, however, earned him nothing, since, by judgment of 9 August of the same year 1437 he was sentenced to return to the relatives of Mina, which lay in poverty, as they believed the goods of it, and to remain in prison until the time of 'full refund.
