Hotel Ischia. Ischia Offerte. Lastminute Ischia. Ischia Hotels. INFORMATION - THE 'PILLARS'
I Pilastri (10)
The aqueduct called the "Pilastri" was built in the seventeenth century in order to convey the water from the Buceto spring to the heart of the town of Celsa, thereby satisfying the requirements for water of the inhabitants of the town of Ischia (Ischia Ponte). Orazio Tuttavilla was sent by the Governor to Ischia in 1580 with the task of building the aqueduct hat had been decided by the viceroy Granvelle. The aqueduct that Orazio Tuttavilla started building with great initial enthusiasm and success met with some difficulties (Mat caused work to be suspended). Almost a century went by.

In 1672 Girolamo Rocca became bishop of Ichia and. being a learned man of action, he decided to continue the interrupted work by creating the structure called the Pilastri. In order to pay for the work, the population had to endure a hefty tax on cereals. But when the water arrived, the discomfort they had suffered was forgotten with the advantage of having natural, fresh and tasty water, running all year round even during summer when the tanks dried up. This state of affairs suggested the following significant saying to Monsignor Rocca: "Has sudavit aquas cereris patientia curtae edocuitaue/amem ferre magistra sitis". Which, translated, means "These waters were obtained by sacrificing food: thirst, like a good teacher, has taught us to endure hunger".

The saying was engraved in marble so their everyone remembered the sacrifice made by their forebears when they went to get the water and treated it with due care and respect.
