24 - 26 April 2015


Puglia has suffered a chronic shortage of water for centuries due to geology of the area and porous limestone that disperses the water at great depths. At the beginning of the last century, after yet another epidemic that had caused thousands of deaths, an aqueduct project was undertaken to import water from a distance. It was completed on April 24, 1915 when the water began flowing through the aqueduct when the citizens Bari rushed to the party at the monumental fountain in Piazza Umberto I.

A hundred years after the groundbreaking, the Aqueduct Pugliese is still among the most impressive and exemplary works of hydraulic engineering systems in the world. An interconnected system of aqueducts that stretch for over 21 thousand kilometers, conveying good drinking water to the homes of 4 million people, as required, thanks to an innovative remote control system.
