Renzo Piano's Genoa San Giorgio Bridge features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the Genoa San Giorgio Bridge in Italy, which has been built to replace the Morandi Bridge.

The Morandi Bridge collapsed in a storm almost two years ago in Renzo Piano's home town of Genoa, killing 43 people.

Readers are impressed at the speed at which the architect completed the replacement bridge, with one commenting "Renzo Piano just gets it."

"Its rapid reconstruction aims to become a model for the renovation and adaptation of Italian infrastructure with a high social, economic and strategic significance," said Piano's studio Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
