The Original Outside Water Fountain Artists

The Original Outside Water Fountain Artists Multi-talented people, fountain designers from the 16th to the late 18th century frequently functioned as architects, sculptors, artists, engineers and cultivated scholars all in one. Leonardo da Vinci as a creative master, inventor and scientific virtuoso exemplified this Renaissance master. The forces of nature inspired him to research the qualities and motion of water, and due to his fascination, he systematically captured his ideas in his now famed notebooks. Early Italian fountain designers transformed private villa settings into ingenious water displays complete with emblematic meaning and natural beauty by coupling imagination with hydraulic and gardening experience. Known for his incredible skill in archeology, design and garden design, Pirro Ligorio, the humanist, provided the vision behind the magnificence in Tivoli. Other water fountain designers, masterminding the incredible water marbles, water functions and water antics for the various properties near Florence, were well-versed in humanistic topics and time-honored scientific texts.

Water Delivery Strategies in Ancient Rome

Water Delivery Strategies in Ancient Rome Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct built in Rome, commenced supplying the many people living in the hills with water in 273 BC, although they had depended on natural springs up until then. If citizens living at higher elevations did not have accessibility to springs or the aqueduct, they’d have to be dependent on the other existing solutions of the day, cisterns that collected rainwater from the sky and subterranean wells that received the water from under ground. Starting in the sixteenth century, a unique approach was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean sectors to supply water to Pincian Hill. All through the length of the aqueduct’s channel were pozzi, or manholes, that gave entry. While these manholes were provided to make it simpler and easier to protect the aqueduct, it was also possible to use buckets to remove water from the channel, which was carried out by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he purchased the property in 1543 to his passing in 1552. Although the cardinal also had a cistern to get rainwater, it couldn't supply a sufficient amount of water. To provide himself with a much more effective means to obtain water, he had one of the manholes exposed, offering him access to the aqueduct below his residence.
