Lakes and rivers, magnificent vistas steeped in history, lifelines of human aggregation and development. The majestic River Po, its tributaries, its cities - Mantova, Verona, Pavia - it is a problem-plagued delta, now a burgeoning National Wildlife Park. The River Arno and Florence is the ultimate cultural reservoir. The River Tiber and the astonishing network of ancient Roman aqueducts that served Rome, the greatest cauldron of art and history the world has ever seen â€“ this is the first ever investigation into how the use of hydraulic skills influenced the cityâ€™s growth and monumental heritage.
