Summary

Report on attempts to address problems with water levels from the Acqua Felice, an aqueduct constructed in the late 16th century during the papacy of Sixtus V from springs at the Pantano di Griffi to the terminal fountain (mostra) at the Piazza della Terme. The report reviews earlier investigations in 1664 by architect and engineer Luigi Bernini, brother of the sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and discusses renewed efforts in 1683 by the architect Mattia de Rossi and Dutch engineer Cornelis Meijer. The report is a disbound gathering from a large volume.
