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

�Carmini. Says the artwork in his \Topographical Description of Venice,\ that these roads are so appealed because they were close to the hospice of Pinzochere del Carmine, who worked the \patiences\, that is those small chlamydia, which some are wont to bring devotion under the robes. To us, however, seems more natural than the above mentioned roads would take its name from the sales that you did here at the 'patiences, \as they still practiced the feast of the Madonna del Carmine, especially since the hospice of Pinzochere really was located in\ Calle Lunga 'of S. Barnabas, not immediately next to the 'Calle' and the 'Bridge Pazienze \, but only in front of the\ Calle delle Pazienze Dirty \, so called by Estimi\ Calle dirty Fazza the Pinzochere. \ Some females had been admitted since 1300 up to participate in pious works of religious allocated in the convent of S. M. del Carmine. They first lived separately, but in 1498 they gathered in a house given to them by a Louis Vielmo, calling for S. Our Lady of Hope, and taking the name of the Tertiary, or Pinzochere del Carmine. Why do some streets of Venice are called 'Dirty', see Dirty (Calle.
