Original Water Delivery Techniques in Rome

Original Water Delivery Techniques in Rome Previous to 273, when the 1st elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was constructed in Roma, inhabitants who resided on hillsides had to travel even further down to get their water from natural sources. When aqueducts or springs weren’t accessible, people living at raised elevations turned to water pulled from underground or rainwater, which was made possible by wells and cisterns. In the very early sixteenth century, the city began to make use of the water that ran beneath the earth through Acqua Vergine to supply water to Pincian Hill. During the length of the aqueduct’s channel were pozzi, or manholes, that gave access. Whilst these manholes were developed to make it less difficult to maintain the aqueduct, it was also feasible to use containers to pull 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. It seems that, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t good enough to meet his needs.Original Water Delivery Techniques Rome 4143629683759.jpg By using an opening to the aqueduct that ran under his property, he was set to fulfill his water needs.
