Abstract

The paper takes into account the profile of Antonio Zannoni, an Italian Engineer who played a relevant role in discovering and restoring ancient aqueducts in the Emilia-Romagna and Marche regions in the mid and late 19th century. Among the most relevant task undertaken by Zannoni there were the re-activation of the Roman aqueduct in Bologna, the ancient Bononia, which took some twenty years between 1860s and 1880s, as well as the projects for the restoration of the Roman aqueducts in Forlì and in Pesaro. The paper focuses on the methodological contributions given by Zannoni to this field of study, that was highly innovated through the technical approach Zannoni used to analyze the ancient infrastructures as well as through the ‘standardization’ of his method, applied to several aqueducts.
