Where is the bridge?

Hello, it may be a unusual question, but my brother and me we would like to know, where our grandfather died 1944. He was a german soldier and was killed in a train just on a bridge in italy. We only have a written text of my grandmother, saying the bridge was near Orvieto (difficult to read), over the Arno summer 1944. His name was Anton Ormanns. We actually found a bridge bombed in 1944, that is still untouched since then, but it is near Calcinaia ( ). Could anyone of you help us or give us hints where to look at? Best regards Hubertus and Raphael
