Rome's water supply system, one of the marvels of the ancient world.

  • 1
The Romans are famous for this public water system.
I think its the most important thing they did. :-)
Римляне известны этой общественной системе водоснабжения.

Cinque Terre village fountains provide clean drinking water.

There is a theory that Roman Empire collapsed because of its water supply system - it had a lot of lead pipes in it.

Is the faucet itself also Ancient-Roman 2000 year old?

I don't know. It doesn't seem like they would have that technology.

These public water fountains are in every village and several to a village. It seems like a wonderful idea. ...better than plastic bottles :-)

Indeed it does.

I think they are much newer but use some parts of the old water-conducting systems.
