Rome’s Ingenious Water Delivery Solutions

With the building of the 1st raised aqueduct in Rome, the Aqua Anio Vetus in 273 BC, folks who lived on the city’s hills no longer had to be dependent solely on naturally-occurring spring water for their demands. When aqueducts or springs weren’t accessible, people living at higher elevations turned to water taken from underground or rainwater, which was made possible by wells and cisterns. To deliver water to Pincian Hill in the early 16th century, they applied the emerging tactic of redirecting the circulation from the Acqua Vergine aqueduct’s underground network. As originally constructed, the aqueduct was provided along the length of its channel with pozzi (manholes) constructed at regular intervals. Although they were originally planned to make it possible to service the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi started using the manholes to collect water from the channel, starting when he bought the property in 1543. The cistern he had built to gather rainwater wasn’t adequate to meet his water requirements. To provide himself with a much more streamlined system to obtain water, he had one of the manholes exposed, offering him access to the aqueduct below his property.

In addition to the wonderful characteristics of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment.

Putting in a wall fountain is your best solution for a little garden because a spouting or cascading fountain takes up too much space. Two possibilities to choose from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which hangs on a wall. A water feature can be added to an existing wall if you include some type of fountain mask as well as a basin to collect the water below. Since the plumbing and masonry work is substantial to complete this type of job, you should employ a specialist to do it rather than attempt to do it alone.
