Aqueducts: The Solution to Rome's Water Problems

Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct founded in Rome, started off providing the people living in the hills with water in 273 BC, even though they had depended on natural springs up until then. When aqueducts or springs weren’t accessible, people living at raised elevations turned to water taken from underground or rainwater, which was made available by wells and cisterns. In the very early sixteenth century, the city began to use the water that ran below ground through Acqua Vergine to deliver drinking water to Pincian Hill. As originally constructed, the aqueduct was provided along the length of its channel with pozzi (manholes) constructed at regular intervals. While these manholes were manufactured to make it easier to protect the aqueduct, it was also feasible to use containers to extract water from the channel, which was utilized by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he acquired the property in 1543 to his passing in 1552. Reportedly, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t sufficient to meet his needs. That is when he decided to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran below his property.Large Outdoor Fountains Water Elements 75800617194.jpg
