Abstract

Water is essential for establishing a community. In the ancient world the water had an important role in the organization of urban spaces, likewise in chora. Poseidonia, one of the centers of Ancient Greece, it is a case in point to understand all aspects of the significance of water. In fact, although it is limited documentation on public and private water supply of the city, like the drainage system, there are numerous testimonies of urban sacred spaces within works related to water. In the chora, the presence of springs located east of the city (at Fonte di Roccadaspide, Capodifiume, Getsemani, Acqua che bolle) in sacred places highlights how much importance the community gave to water not only for the life of the community, but also for the control and management of the territory
