Water Transport Solutions in Early Rome

Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct founded in Rome, started supplying the men and women living in the hills with water in 273 BC, though they had counted on natural springs up till then. If people living at higher elevations did not have access to springs or the aqueduct, they’d have to count on the other existing systems of the time, cisterns that accumulated rainwater from the sky and subterranean wells that drew the water from under ground. Starting in the sixteenth century, a newer system was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean sections to generate water to Pincian Hill. Throughout the time of its original construction, pozzi (or manholes) were positioned at set intervals alongside the aqueduct’s channel. Whilst these manholes were created to make it easier to maintain the aqueduct, it was also feasible to use containers to pull water from the channel, which was carried out by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he acquired the property in 1543 to his death in 1552. Even though the cardinal also had a cistern to collect rainwater, it couldn't supply sufficient water. That is when he made the decision to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran under his residential property.
