Abstract

Inadequate water supply prompted the Ragusan authorities in the first half of the fifteenth century to consider the construction of an aqueduct. The latter owes its design to Italian master Onofrio della Cava, bearing witness to his engineering skill but also to the far-sighted politics of the Ragusan commune. Based on archival material and field research, the authors trace the construction of the aqueduct from the spring in ©umet to the City fountains and industrial facilities.
