Original Water Delivery Solutions in The City Of Rome

Previous to 273, when the first elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in Roma, residents who resided on hills had to go further down to get their water from natural sources. When aqueducts or springs weren’t accessible, people living at greater elevations turned to water removed from underground or rainwater, which was made possible by wells and cisterns. To offer water to Pincian Hill in the early 16th century, they employed the new method of redirecting the circulation from the Acqua Vergine aqueduct’s underground channel. All through the length of the aqueduct’s channel were pozzi, or manholes, that gave access. During the roughly 9 years he had the residence, from 1543 to 1552, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi used these manholes to take water from the network in buckets, though they were actually established for the intent of maintaining and maintenance the aqueduct. He didn’t get sufficient water from the cistern that he had constructed on his residential property to obtain rainwater. That is when he made the decision to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran beneath his residential property.

Where did Fountains Come From?

A fountain, an amazing piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also propel water high into the air for a noteworthy effect.

Pure functionality was the original role of fountains. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to supply them with potable water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Up until the nineteenth, fountains had to be higher and closer to a water source, such as aqueducts and reservoirs, in order to benefit from gravity which fed the fountains. Designers thought of fountains as wonderful additions to a living space, however, the fountains also served to supply clean water and honor the designer responsible for creating it. Animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks were often used by Romans to decorate their fountains. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden designers included fountains in their designs to re-create the gardens of paradise. The fountains seen in the Gardens of Versailles were meant to show the power over nature held by King Louis XIV of France. The Romans of the 17th and 18th centuries manufactured baroque decorative fountains to glorify the Popes who commissioned them as well as to mark the spot where the restored Roman aqueducts entered the city.

Since indoor plumbing became the standard of the day for fresh, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely ornamental. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity helped fountains to bring recycled water into living spaces as well as create special water effects.

Modern-day fountains function mostly as decoration for public spaces, to honor individuals or events, and enhance entertainment and recreational gatherings.
