Acqua Vergine: The Solution to Rome's Water Challenges

Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct founded in Rome, started delivering the men and women living in the hills with water in 273 BC, even though they had counted on natural springs up till then. During this time period, there were only two other techniques capable of providing water to elevated areas, subterranean wells and cisterns, which accumulated rainwater. From the early sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill via the subterranean channel of Acqua Vergine. Pozzi, or manholes, were built at regular stretches along the aqueduct’s channel. Although they were initially planned to make it possible to support the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi started out using the manholes to gather water from the channel, starting when he acquired the property in 1543. It seems that, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t adequate to meet his needs. To provide himself with a much more efficient means to assemble water, he had one of the manholes exposed, providing him access to the aqueduct below his property.
