Inventors of the First Water Fountains

Water feature designers were multi-talented individuals from the 16th to the late 18th century, often working as architects, sculptors, artisans, engineers and highly educated scholars all in one. Leonardo da Vinci as a inspired intellect, inventor and scientific virtuoso exemplified this Renaissance master. He systematically noted his observations in his currently recognized notebooks, following his mind boggling fascination in the forces of nature led him to explore the qualities and movement of water. Coupling imagination with hydraulic and horticultural talent, early Italian water feature engineers modified private villa settings into amazing water displays full with emblematic meaning and natural charm. The humanist Pirro Ligorio, distinguished for his virtuosity in archeology, architecture and garden design, provided the vision behind the splendors in Tivoli. Other water feature developers, masterminding the fantastic water marbles, water attributes and water jokes for the various estates in the vicinity of Florence, were well-versed in humanist subjects and time-honored scientific texts.

Original Water Delivery Solutions in The City Of Rome

Previous to 273, when the very first elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was made in Roma, inhabitants who dwelled on hills had to travel further down to get their water from natural sources.Original Water Delivery Solutions City Rome 6209687894.jpg Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the only technological innovations available at the time to supply water to locations of greater elevation. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill via the subterranean channel of Acqua Vergine. Pozzi, or manholes, were built at standard intervals along the aqueduct’s channel. The manholes made it more straightforward to thoroughly clean the channel, but it was also achievable to use buckets to remove water from the aqueduct, as we witnessed with Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi when he bought the property from 1543 to 1552, the year he passed away. Even though the cardinal also had a cistern to get rainwater, it couldn't produce sufficient water. To give himself with a much more effective way to gather water, he had one of the manholes opened, offering him access to the aqueduct below his residence.

A Wall Water Feature to Fit Your Decor

A small patio or a courtyard is a great spot to situate your wall fountain when you seek peace and quiet. You can also make use of a small space by having one custom-made. A spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump are necessary for freestanding as well as mounted styles. Traditional, modern, antique, and Asian are just some of the styles from which you can consider.

Freestanding wall fountains, commonly known as floor fountains, are noticeably big and feature a basin on the ground.

You can decide to put your wall-mounted feature on an preexisting wall or build it into a new wall. Incorporating this kind of water feature into your landscape adds a cohesiveness to the look you want to achieve rather than making it seem as if the fountain was merely added later.
