Siena and its water.

Project 7 of 11

Water has always been a major problem for Siena, being the city far from the coast and from any lake or big river. Moreover, the city developed on the top of three hills, thus making it more complicated to guardantee water supply to its inhabitants. Thus a long and intricated net of galleries were excavated in order to collect raining water and convey it towards the city fountains. We will go together to meet these fonti….Fonte Gaia, Fontebranda, Fonte nuova d’Ovile, Fonte del Casato, Fontanella, Fonte delle Monache, Fonte di Pescaia. /p>
