Rome’s First Water Delivery Systems

With the manufacturing of the 1st raised aqueduct in Rome, the Aqua Anio Vetus in 273 BC, people who lived on the city’s hillsides no longer had to be dependent exclusively on naturally-occurring spring water for their demands. Over this time period, there were only two other innovations capable of providing water to elevated areas, subterranean wells and cisterns, which gathered rainwater. Beginning in the sixteenth century, a brand new system was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean sections to supply water to Pincian Hill. Pozzi, or manholes, were made at standard stretches along the aqueduct’s channel. During the roughly 9 years he possessed the residence, from 1543 to 1552, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi utilized these manholes to take water from the channel in containers, though they were actually designed for the objective of maintaining and maintaining the aqueduct. Whilst the cardinal also had a cistern to get rainwater, it didn’t supply a sufficient amount of water. Through an orifice to the aqueduct that flowed underneath his property, he was set to satisfy his water wants.
