Italian drought exposes roman emperor’s bridge

Italy’s government has declared a state of emergency in some areas because of a prolonged drought and an accompanying heat wave.

The drought also exposed a World War II-era tank in Italy’s largest Po River.

Severe drought in Italy exposed the pillars of an ancient bridge over the Tiber river once used by Roman emperors.

Two pillars of Nero’s Bridge were unveiled on Aug. 22 near the Vittorio Emanuele Bridge over the Tiber River in Rome, as Italy was suffering its worst drought in 70 years.
