The Ponte Minich is a bridge which lies in the Sestiere Castello in Venice and connects the Calle Trevisan with the Calle Bressana. To have the bridge named for him, the surgeon Angelo Minich (1817–1893) bequeathed the city of Venice thirty thousand lire in his will of 25 September 1893, for the comfort and education of the city and for on-time departure performance of the Venezianer electrical clocks. The clocks are still present today. They have a white face with Roman numerals, and the housings are made of cast iron.
