The plan for a bridge over the Dora first was requested by Napoleon in 1807. But it became a reality in 1818, when an urban renewal plan was put forward that also demolished the walls and bastions of the city. The architect Carlo Bernardo Mosca was commissioned a stone bridge to replace the earlier wood structure. Construction proceeded from 1823 to 1830. At inauguration, the 45-meter-long (148 ft) bridge was considered technologically advanced. It was renamed Mosca in 1868, a year after the architect's death.

Five stars to the architectural structure, one to the surrounding degradation. It is not possible that nobody, I say nobody, wake up and come down from the plant to control the conditions in which the fly and the long surrounding Dora. A neighbourhood, the Aurora of Turin, which has in this structure one of its symbolic places, today in total mercy of obscure characters which should be imparted a severe lesson of civility, before driving them out to treads (and not to pass in the wrong). It is a myth that falls, considering that it is the initial segment of Corso Giulio Cesare, that the stretch of road called Balon boast buildings of rare quality, and it is criminal to let an area of Turin at the gates of the center is so inhospitable. Just!
