Covered Bridge in Pavia

We were told we had free time before dinner, so off we went to find the covered bridge we were told about. We got directions which we immediately screwed up. This means that we went sightseeing a little more. Finally, the covered bridge was in sight. There were tons of people on it and closed to vehicles. To our surprise I there was what kind of festival going on.
In 1431 there was a clash between the fleet of Filippo Maria Visconti, Lord of Milan, led by Pal of Eustachi, Bunting and Captain General of the Naviglio Ducale and the boathouse, and the impressive fleet of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, led by Nicolò Misrepresent. The navigli ducali, set sail from Pavia to prevent an attack on the city near Cremona, they stumble into the fleet of the Serenissima, bolstered by a hundred ships loaded with soldiers, went up the river right to move to besiege the ancient Ticinum ( the current Pavia). LL return to Pavia was triumphant!
