In the video, water gushes over the sides of the structure, which is located in Gagliano del Capo province, pouring into the valley below. 

Owners of Bar Ristorante L'Incanto, who posted the footage on Facebook, criticised the bridge's design for allowing the phenomenon to happen.

It comes during a wave of extreme weather across the country where flooding has brought some areas to a total standstill.
