The cistern at Podere Cannicci – Day 3 (June 15, 2022)

Today our group was engaged both at Cannicci and at the cistern. At the cistern we cleaned portions of the cocciopesto located outside the structure. Some of these pieces are not in place, and we tried to figure out the magnitude and where they could be originally placed. We also made drawings and made measurements of the interior of the cistern. After cleaning part of the interior, a large block of stone inside the cistern is now visible, most likely what remains of a pillar to sustain the vault.
We’re ready for mapping the structure tomorrow morning!
