Daniele Galli, the Potenza cover

A few months ago Lorebini published a post named “Concrete Power” regarding a concrete bridge in the city of Potenza.

As soon as Daniele Galli has read the post, he drove to the south of Italy to skate this unusual spot and he rightly got the cover on 6:00AM 62 with this fs slasher photographed by Fede Romanello.

Concrete power

by lorebini 18 June 2012

A few weeks ago I drove through Potenza to specifically see this bridge. Designed by Sergio Musmeci, it was built in 1969 over the Basento river to link the motorway with the historical town centre. The structure has no pillars, merely supported by a continuous 30cm thick surface, twisted in order to form gigantic arches that make a walkable path, thus becoming an engineering and an art masterpiece at the same time. Although the concrete is not  super smooth, I was wondering if any skater has ever tried these transitions.

Just in case, I took some pictures.
