Rome’s Ingenious Water Delivery Solutions

Previous to 273, when the very first elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was made in Rome, residents who dwelled on hillsides had to travel even further down to gather their water from natural sources. Throughout this period, there were only two other innovations capable of delivering water to higher areas, subterranean wells and cisterns, which amassed rainwater. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill by using the underground channel of Acqua Vergine. During the length of the aqueduct’s channel were pozzi, or manholes, that gave access. While these manholes were manufactured to make it easier to protect the aqueduct, it was also possible to use containers to pull water from the channel, which was utilized by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he purchased the property in 1543 to his passing in 1552. He didn’t get an adequate amount water from the cistern that he had established on his residential property to gather rainwater. That is when he decided to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran under his residential property.

"Primitive" Greek Art: Garden Statuary

Archaic Greeks were known for developing the first freestanding statuary; up till then, most carvings were constructed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of young and attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi, viewed by the Greeks to portray beauty, had one foot stretched out of a fixed forward-facing posture and the male statues were regularly undressed, with a compelling, powerful build. Around 650 BC, life-size models of the kouroi began to be seen. A massive time of modification for the Greeks, the Archaic period brought about more forms of state, expressions of art, and a higher comprehension of people and customs outside of Greece. Nevertheless, the Greek civilization was not slowed down by these struggles.
