Aqueducts: The Answer to Rome's Water Challenges

Aqueducts: The Answer to Rome's Water Challenges Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct assembled in Rome, started out supplying the people living in the hills with water in 273 BC, even though they had counted on natural springs up until then. Over this period, there were only 2 other techniques capable of offering water to higher areas, subterranean wells and cisterns, which gathered rainwater. From the early sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill through the subterranean channel of Acqua Vergine. The aqueduct’s channel was made available by pozzi, or manholes, that were positioned along its length when it was first designed. Even though they were initially developed to make it possible to support the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi began using the manholes to gather water from the channel, starting when he obtained the property in 1543. It appears that, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t good enough to fulfill his needs. That is when he made a decision to create an access point to the aqueduct that ran underneath his residence.
