Florence http://www.broncosfansproshop.com/Broncos+Shane+Ray+Rush+Jersey.html?cat=1297 , a city that was too close to the Gothic Line, is remembered as one of the places where the art world lost the most. A city that was rich in art and historically significant, where most of the western civilization's greatest art had been created and carefully preserved, was now at the threshold of war. Some of the highlights of the siege include:

Stalling the Allies:
Gen. Albert Kesselring, commander of the German army in Italy, was not ready to grant any military advantage to the Allies and was trying his best to drag the war. A couple of months earlier the Germans had spared Rome's bridges during their withdrawal from the city, which in turn aided the Allied entry into Italy. Since they didn't want to repeat the mistake, the General decided that its best to destroy the city's bridges and slow down the advancing Allies and thereby assist the German army's retreat into the north of Italy.

Fall of the Bridges:
In early August of 1944, in the face of the advancing Allied forces, the retreating German soldiers had got their orders to blow up every bridge in Florence, except the Ponte Vecchio, which was the oldest bridge in the city. The city already weary of the ongoing war was heartbroken to see its art and architecture end up paying such a terrible price. The famous Santa Trinita Bridge that was designed by Bartolomeo Ammannoti, in the mid 16th century, with the assistance of the great Michelangelo, had such strength that it fell only after the third detonation. "

Recovery Measures:
Known as the "most beautiful bridge in the world," Santa Trinita was destroyed for nothing. The Allied troops used a portable, pre-fabricated "Bailey bridge," and got it assembled atop the existing piers of Santa Trinita and successfully crossed the Arno. For safeguarding the incredible art located in Florence, an elite Allied squad was called in at the Florence Rail Yard to execute one of the most precise bomb strikes of WWII. The Allied unit did an incredible job in successfully destroying just the 400 feet wide Rail Yard, thus preventing the Nazis from receiving critical supplies and saving the art. Finally, on May 2, 1945, the German troops in Italy laid their arms down for good, and the war in Italy came to an end.

Florence without the iconic Santa Trinita Bridge was unimaginable! A noted American art historian, Bernard Berenson, who lived in Florence help rebuild the bridge in 1958. The bridge is now considered a perfect replica of the original.



Struts are the network of braces and sway bars under the Mercedes-Benz chassis. They support the weight of the Mercedes-Benz and take the brunt of chassis flex. Since cars only have the wheels to prop it up on the ground, the car strut assembly is made up of a rigid steel framework.

During torque transfer when rotational motion from the Mercedes-Benz engine passes to the drive train and on to the wheels, the strut assembly keeps tight rein of the chassis and insulates the cabin from an overload of torque. When the Mercedes-Benz hug curves, moreover, the longitudinal compression is absorbed by the strut assembly. By rerouting the force of compression away from the chassis and into the strut framework, the struts hold up the chassis from rolling sideways.

Individual Mercedes-Benz struts resist torque and chassis flex by transmitting it to the movable mounting points on the car chassis. Strut mounts on a Mercedes-Benz serve as pivot points for the struts. They work much like ?passive? shock absorbers. They redirect excess torque and flex away from the chassis. But, instead of absorbing the force as shock absorbers do, struts transmit the resulting rigidity away from the axis of compression and into the flexible couplings on the Mercedes-Benz called strut mounts.

Mercedes-Benz struts are ordinarily installed across the chassis and at the heart of the drive train, where the assembly is on a high ground to function as chassis frame. These STRUTS sport rugged designs and, in tandem with the upper suspension arms of the Mercedes-Benz, reinforces the car?s drive train.

Traditional Mercedes struts assembly is called strut tower brace. It unifies the strut shafts and sway bars and is often used on the rear part of a Mercedes-Benz drive train, where chassis flex and car weight peak.

The front end of the drive train, since it is involved in steering, is fitted with a MacPherson strut assembly. This type of struts can also be used on the rear end of the car if it is capable of a four-wheel drive. The strut mounts at the head of the Mercedes-Benz strut assembly have rubber joints with bushings and bearings to provide a flexible coupling.

Generally, both types of strut assemblies depend on the rigidity of the struts in the face of torque and chassis flex. To reinforce individual struts, they work in tandem with the braces and sway bars in the assembly. Since the weights of both chassis flex and torque transfers are passed on to the strut mounts, this is where strut braces and shafts usually loose grip of the chassis.

If a metallic under-chassis noise can be heard every time the Mercedes-Benz corners, it is a sign that the strut assembly has become loose on the strut mounts. Hard steering is another indication that the struts may not be in a good condition to spare the Mercedes-Benz chassis from compression.

With the regular pounding that struts and strut mounts receive, it is critical that loose strut mounts are immediately addressed. A slight slack strut mount can snowball into the caving in of the Mercedes-Benz strut assembly.
