Water Transport Solutions in Early Rome

Previous to 273, when the 1st elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was constructed in Roma, citizens who lived on hills had to travel further down to collect their water from natural sources. When aqueducts or springs weren’t available, people living at raised elevations turned to water removed from underground or rainwater, which was made available by wells and cisterns. Starting in the sixteenth century, a brand new approach was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean portions to provide water to Pincian Hill. Pozzi, or manholes, were made at standard stretches along the aqueduct’s channel. The manholes made it easier to thoroughly clean the channel, but it was also achievable to use buckets to remove water from the aqueduct, as we discovered with Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi when he owned the property from 1543 to 1552, the year he died. Though the cardinal also had a cistern to collect rainwater, it couldn't provide sufficient water. To give himself with a much more useful system to obtain water, he had one of the manholes opened up, providing him access to the aqueduct below his property.Intriguing Beauty Wall Water Fountains 207025070414862650.jpg
