Rome’s Early Water Delivery Solutions

Rome’s first raised aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; prior to that, residents living at higher elevations had to depend on natural springs for their water. If inhabitants living at higher elevations did not have accessibility to springs or the aqueduct, they’d have to rely on the other existing technologies of the time, cisterns that accumulated rainwater from the sky and subterranean wells that received the water from below ground. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill via the subterranean channel of Acqua Vergine. As originally constructed, the aqueduct was provided along the length of its channel with pozzi (manholes) constructed at regular intervals. During the roughly nine years he possessed the residential property, from 1543 to 1552, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi made use of these manholes to take water from the network in containers, though they were originally built for the function of cleaning and servicing the aqueduct. He didn’t get adequate water from the cistern that he had built on his property to collect rainwater. Via an opening to the aqueduct that ran underneath his property, he was in a position to fulfill his water desires.
