Acqua Vergine: The Solution to Rome's Water Challenges

Rome’s very first raised aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; prior to that, inhabitants residing at higher elevations had to depend on local springs for their water. Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the lone technological innovations available at the time to supply water to segments of high elevation. Starting in the sixteenth century, a newer program was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean segments to provide water to Pincian Hill. During the length of the aqueduct’s channel were pozzi, or manholes, that gave access. While these manholes were manufactured to make it less difficult to preserve the aqueduct, it was also possible to use containers to extract water from the channel, which was done by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he purchased the property in 1543 to his death in 1552. It seems that, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t enough to meet his needs. That is when he made the decision to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran under his property.
