Constructed in 1769, it was designed at the end of the 16th century – during the Bentivoglio reclamation works - to replace the wooden bridge over the Crostolo stream.

It is built in fired bricks and composed of three arches. Its name derives from the “locks” which were lowered into the stream, in order to keep the water level high and divert it into a channel that set a nearby mill in motion. The bridge was strategically located: it was part of the ancient “Via Domorum de Boscho”, ensuring the transit from the plain to Reggio Emilia and the hills.

The gualtieri flood plain offers significant opportunities from the naturalistic point of view in the different seasons of the year. The territory enclosed between the master's embankment and the Po riverbed is very complex and diversified, including both naturalistic and anthropological aspects.
