Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

07, we spent the day after our arrival on Piazza Solferino. The part of the pier between Via Roma and Via Santa Maria is called “Lung´Arno Pacinotti”. Alongside the narrow sidewalk, ribbon rails are inset into the road. First I thought they use them for the transport of shiploads. However, I haven´t seen any ships. I stayed at this place to do some sketching of the unique bridge pillar. Each of them looked like a ship´s hold turn upside down, with one of the bows facing in the direction of the square. Apparently the pillar must be curved from top to bottom, because I could not see any contact point between the pillar and the crosswalk from my point of view. The crosswalk seemed to float above the seemingly useless pillars. Since I´ve heard that the Arno is high many times during the rainy season, I assume that this oversized pillars are a necessary construction.
