Original Edition

Orvieto, Umbria, Italy, 2013. Also known as 'The Pope's Well' (Pozzo di S. Patrizio), constructed between 1527 and 1537 by architect-engineer Antonio da Sangallo the Younger of Florence as requested by Pope Clement VII during the sack of Rome. The pope was concerned that the city's water supply would not be sufficient during a siege. The name was inspired by medieval legends that St. Patrick's Purgatory in Ireland gave access down to Purgatory, indicating something very deep.

The architect-engineer Antonio da Sangallo the Younger surrounded the central well shaft with two spiral ramps in a double helix, accessed by two doors, which allowed mules to carry empty and full water vessels separately in downward and upward directions without obstruction. The cylindrical well is 53.15 metres (174.4 ft) deep with a base diameter of 13 metres (43 ft). There are 248 steps and 70 windows provide illumination.
