Water Transport Solutions in Early Rome

Rome’s 1st raised aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; prior to that, inhabitants living at higher elevations had to rely on natural springs for their water. Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the only technological innovations available at the time to supply water to locations of higher elevation.Water Transport Solutions Early Rome 75800617194.jpg From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill through the subterranean channel of Acqua Vergine. The aqueduct’s channel was made attainable by pozzi, or manholes, that were added along its length when it was 1st constructed. During the roughly 9 years he possessed the residence, from 1543 to 1552, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi made use of these manholes to take water from the channel in buckets, though they were previously built for the function of cleaning and maintenance the aqueduct. Despite the fact that the cardinal also had a cistern to collect rainwater, it didn’t produce a sufficient amount of water. That is when he made the decision to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran beneath his residential property.Outdoor Garden Fountains Water Elements 057862912369871468.jpg
